Denver Property Tax Relief Program

The Denver Property Tax Relief Program (formerly known as the Elderly or Disabled Refund Program) provides a partial refund of property taxes, or the equivalent in rent, paid to qualifying Denver residents.

 
 

What You Need To Know

To qualify, residents must be 65 years of age or older and income limited or be totally disabled. This refund is a gift and, therefore, there is no lien attached to the property.

To be eligible for the refund, you must either be a senior aged 65 or above or disabled. If you are a senior aged 65 or older, you must meet the income limits, have owned or rented your home, and have resided in Denver the entire year.

If you are disabled, you must have owned or rented your home and been unable to engage in any substantial, gainful activity by reason of physical or mental impairment, determined within a reasonable degree of medical certainty, and receive benefit payment under any bonafide plan of a public or private agency providing total disability.

Applications were mailed prior to May 1, 2018, to anyone who applied for the rebate in the previous year (2017). Applications for the 2017 tax year must be submitted by April 30, 2019. 

Applications will be processed in the order they are received and processing may take up to six months. After the application has been approved and processed, a check will be mailed to the applicant.
