Colorado Property Taxes: Threats vs. Solutions

Colorado Property Taxes: Threats vs. Solutions

A resource for understanding the 2024 Property Tax Fight

Colorado property taxes pay for nearly everything we rely on in our local communities. Schools, public safety, libraries, and so much of the basic infrastructure we use every day are funded by this local tax. 

Since the Gallagher Amendment was repealed in 2020, our state has argued over how to best protect homeowners from rapidly increasing Colorado and Denver property tax bills today and in the future.  

At the end of the 2024 legislative session, in a historic bipartisan vote, the Colorado General Assembly passed legislation that lowers property tax bills AND protects funding for vital community services. 

This page helps break down that legislation and compares the solutions with the threats –  the reckless proposals that voters will be asked to weigh in on this November.
