Notices of Value (NOV)


You will receive a Notice of Value, also called an NOV, for each property you own in Teller County. NOVs are mailed out on or about May 1, in all reappraisal years (odd numbered years) OR in an (even numbered year) if a property characteristic or classification has changed.

While you are awaiting the arrival of your NOV, you may review your property characteristics online to ensure that the information is accurate.  Should you discover information that is incorrect, please contact us.  Please do not wait for your NOV to arrive as it is important that the information be corrected as soon as possible.

When your NOV arrives, be sure to review it.  You will note that it includes information, such as building style, square footage, year built, bathroom count, and other information applicable to your property.  The NOV should include any known changes to your property, but remember that the Assessor can only consider information gathered during the data collection period.  For 2013, the data collection period is July 1, 2008 to June 30, 2012 for residential property and July 1, 2007 to June 30, 2012 for commercial properties and vacant land..

Properties are re-appraised in odd-numbered years, for example - the value set for 2011, will be in effect for 2011 and 2012.  No sales information outside of the data collection period will be considered.

If you discover an error in the characteristics of your property, you may submit this information at any time.  In order for your valuation to be correct, it is important that the Assessor have correct and complete information.

Most taxpayers will not receive a Notice of Value every year; however, you may protest each May.
