    Attention all business owners: Considering the current COVID-19 concerns,
    Business personal property declaration filing deadline has been extended to June 15, 2020.

    On April 2, 2020, Governor Polis issued Executive Order D 2020-022, and on April 9, 2020, the State Board of Equalization adopted related emergency rules that changed all dates that were impacted due to the extension of filing deadlines for annually assessed properties. These date changes included certification of values to taxing authorities, which is now October 13, 2020.
