Assessor's Office


The Assessor's office is now located at:
679 Turner Drive Suite A, Durango, CO, 81303, in Bodo Industrial Park.

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***


The Assessor must notify the property owner of any change in value. The "NOV" is mailed no later than May 1st for real property. This provides the property owner with the opportunity to appeal the value.  Step by step instructions at link above.

The County Assessor is responsible for valuing all real and personal property, including mobile homes, residential, commercial properties, oil and gas, and agricultural land for property tax purposes. The Assessor determines the equitable value of property to ensure that each tax payer pays only his or her fair share of the taxes.  The Assessor strives to ensure property ownership and land configurations are current, correct and that the proper person receives Notices of Value and the property tax bill.

Anyone who disagrees with changes in the actual value of real property can object or file a protest with the Assessor.

Warning: The La Plata County Assessor’s Office maintains a bedroom count exclusively for its own ad valorem valuation purposes and this bedroom count should not be relied on for any other purpose.  Similarly, other property inventory data collected and maintained by the La Plata County Assessor’s Office is exclusively for its own ad valorem classification and valuation purposes and should be independently verified for reliability prior to use for any other purpose.
