Property Tax Relief

Many businesses and individuals in Arapahoe County are struggling financially due to the current COVID-19 crisis. The Arapahoe County Treasure is working to ease their property tax burden to the extent allowed under current law. Read the brief informational announcement(DOCX, 13KB) about the property tax relief currently available in Arapahoe County.

Note: Due to automation features, the online and over-the-phone payment system cannot waive interest. To take advantage of the waiver of interest on first half payments, you must mail your payment to the Arapahoe County office or utilize the ballot box outside of the Administration Building as a drop box. View mail and drop of locations on the Arapahoe County website.

There is a time limit on this relief as the Executive Order expires April 20. And this applies to Arapahoe County only. Some treasurers in other counties are doing things differently.

Avoid Coronavirus Scams

There is a reported increase in fraud schemes related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Please use caution while staying at home and learn how to protect yourself.

Tips to Protect Yourself

The FCC offers the following tips to help you protect yourself from scams, including coronavirus scams:

  • Do not respond to calls or texts from unknown numbers, or any others that appear suspicious.
  • Never share your personal or financial information via email, text messages, or over the phone.
  • Be cautious if you’re being pressured to share any information or make a payment immediately.
  • Scammers often spoof phone numbers to trick you into answering or responding. Remember that government agencies will never call you to ask for personal information or money.
  • Do not click any links in a text message. If a friend sends you a text with a suspicious link that seems out of character, call them to make sure they weren't hacked.
  • Always check on a charity (for example, by calling or looking at its actual website) before donating
