Beginning in 2013, Denver adopted the Pilot Alternate Valuation Protest Procedure established by § 39-5-122.8, C.R.S. All valuation, classification and tax disputes are now heard before the Denver Board of County Commissioners (BoCC). Protests differ from abatements. A taxpayer may file either one but not both for the same tax year.
The deadline has passed to file a 2013 protest in the current year. However, 2013 abatements may be filed after January 1, 2014, when 2013 tax statements are issued.
Abatement petitions for tax years 2011 or 2012 may filed with the BoCC now.
