Treasurer sees spike in Eagle County delinquent taxes
Vail, CO Colorado
EAGLE, Colorado – The Eagle County Treasurer’s Office is seeing a large increase in the number of delinquent mobile home and personal property taxes compared to last year. The office is working to make property owners aware of the collection process in order to save them from additional fees on past-due accounts.
All property taxes unpaid as of June 15 are considered delinquent and are accruing monthly interest penalties. Delinquent tax notices were mailed the first week of July, with follow-up notices mailed the first week of August. Any mobile home or personal property taxes that were still delinquent Aug. 20 were advertised in the newspaper, which added a fee of $10 to each account. Mobile homes will be advertised a second time in October, adding another $10 to the amount owed.
Any mobile home or personal property accounts that have not been paid by the end of September will have a “distraint warrant” served to the physical location of the mobile home or business by an Eagle County sheriff’s deputy during the first week of October. This process can add up to $100 in fees to the amount owed. All mobile homes taxes that are still delinquent as of Oct. 22 will be sold at the annual tax lien sale Oct. 27.
