About the Treasurer's Office

Purpose

The treasurer is charged with collecting all county property taxes, making distribution of those taxes to the various underlying taxing authorities, and investing the difference on behalf of the county.

Property Tax Collections

Property taxes are collected one year in arrears. In 2020 the treasurer's office will collect the 2019 taxes for a total value of $1.14 billion on 185,000 tax bills. By June 30th each year the treasurer's office generally collected about 95% of all tax dollars and 90% of tax bills are paid. The remaining six months of the year are spent collecting the 5% of tax dollars that have not been paid. 99.9% of all taxes are collected before the end of the year.

Distributions

In 2019 the treasurer's office distributed property taxes to about 540 underlying taxing authorities. The school districts are by far the largest single portion of the property tax dollars at 40% followed by Weld County at about 20%, all other authorities share the remaining amount. The treasurer prepares monthly statements reflecting amounts collected and disbursed to all underlying authorities.

Investments

The county holds a portfolio of investments including Federal Government Agency bonds with a duration of five years or less, some local bank certificates of deposit, and money market funds all in accordance with the state statutes on public fund investments.

Other Duties

In addition to the collection of taxes, the treasurer’s office also performs tax deferment applications, manufactured home tax authentications, prepares Certificates of Taxes Due, and responds to other inquiries related to taxation.

Reports of the fiscal activities of the treasurer's office are submitted to the Weld County Commissioners and published semi-annually.

The treasurer enforces collection of delinquent taxes by conducting an annual delinquent real estate property tax sale. Personal property is subject to distraint, seizure, and sale of the property.

The treasurer, an appointed position as of January 1, 2003, is also a member (currently Chairman) of the Weld County Retirement Board.
