Teller County Assessor Colt Simmons has extended the 2020 Personal Property Declaration Schedule filing for businesses from Wednesday, April 15 to the Close Of Business on Monday, June 15.
In his extension, Assessor Simmons also waived all penalties and possible arbitrary assessments for all Teller County businesses for tax year 2020.
“Due to these unprecedented times, I have made the decision to extend the 2020 Business Personal Property Declaration Schedule filing,” said Assessor Simmons. “Teller County business owners have far more important things to worry about than submitting another tax form. I hope this decision reduces a bit of anxiety for all our business owners.”
NOTE: Normally, business owners owning more than $7,700 in total actual value of business personal property—like manufacturing equipment, computers, or business furnishings, signs— are required to complete and return either forms DS056, DS060, and DS155. The forms are normally due to the Assessor by April 15 of each year, but are now due by June 15th, 2020.
While the Assessor’s Office is temporarily closed to the public, citizens can still get services done.
