Second-half payments of 2016 Eagle County property taxes due June 15
EAGLE COUNTY — The deadline is June 15 for second-half payments of 2016 property taxes due in 2017. Payments must be made in U.S. funds and issued by a U.S. bank. Payment options include online, in person and by mail.
Online payments can be made at http://www.eaglecounty.us/treasurer under “Property Search — Pay.” There is no fee to pay online using a checking account, and a receipt will be immediately available. A 2.5 percent fee will be charged for credit card transactions. Users of the online payment system are advised that when searching for an account by physical address, it’s often easier to search by only the street name and city, and then scroll to the account, rather than entering a house number.
Payments by check should be made payable to Eagle County Treasurer and delivered in person to 500 Broadway in Eagle or mailed to P.O. Box 479, Eagle, CO 81631. Payments postmarked by June 15 meet the deadline; however, note that only U.S. Postal Service postmarks are accepted.
Payments can also be deposited into the 24-hour drop boxes, used for ballots at election time, located outside of county offices in Eagle and El Jebel.
Contact the Treasurer’s Office at 970-328-8860 for assistance in using a credit card, electronic check payment or to verify the amount due; or visit the “Property Tax Search — Pay” page of the Treasurer’s website.
Those with property taxes being escrowed by a bank or mortgage company should check with their provider before making a tax payment.
The Treasurer’s Office is in the process of attempting to contact any property owners whose accounts are delinquent and accruing interest. For more information, call the Eagle County Treasurer’s Office at 970-328-8860.
The valley’s commercial and residential property markets are similar in some ways — availability is tight and nothing is what you’d call “cheap.”
