Certification of Tax Levies

Local taxing jurisdictions within Douglas County planning on levying a property tax must submit a certification of tax levy to the County pursuant to 39-5-128(1) C.R.S. Pursuant to 39-1-111 C. R. S., the County is required to certify the tax levies for itself, cities, towns, municipalities, school districts, and special districts within its jurisdiction to the Assessor and report them to State of Colorado each year.
Local tax districts are required to submit Tax Levy data to the County through an automated process through a secure interface. This process allows each District the ability to instantly check, validate, and certify their submissions to Douglas County in a timely manner.  The information is then compiled and presented to the Douglas County Board of Commissioners to review and adopt at a public meeting.

For assistance or information on completing the information on the certification of tax levy form (DLG70), please contact the Colorado Division of Local Government.

It is important to note that each taxing jurisdiction should become knowledgeable about possible mill levy limitations based on their unique circumstances prior to submitting their certification of tax levy to the county. The Board of County Commissioners presumes that the taxing jurisdiction has complied with the Colorado constitutional and statutory requirements concerning said levies and the Board of County Commissioners assumes no liability or responsibility associated with any levy of any taxing jurisdiction except for the ministerial, non-discretionary act of certification.

Please contact us if you have questions regarding the submission of the certification of tax levy information to Douglas County at 303-663-6174.
