Not sure, but I believe that the amount of the exemption is determined by the state and is the same for all counties. I'm sure the Denver assessor or treasurer could confirm the amount.

Phil,

Thanks for the info. this will be good news for Wlship10, my mother and lots of seniors who will get a discount on their property taxes. Does anyone know what the discount will be in Denver County?

The exemption is statewide. Here is the link for Denver. I believe that if your mother was eligible before they discontinued it a couple of years ago, she is still eligible this year without needing to reapply. At least, that's the way it is in Jeffco.

Phil,

Thanks for the info, I hadn't heard that. But if it is by county, Denver would not be included. Is there anything in the works to reinstate it for Denver County. If so, my 92 year old mother will be ecstatic. Wlshep10, thank goodness there are a few advantages for becoming a 'senior citizen'. :)

The senior exemption for property taxes was reinstated for 2012.

According to the Jefferson County Assessor's web page:
Who is eligible?
If you were 65 or older as of January 1, and you have continuously owned and occupied your primary residence in Colorado for at least ten consecutive years prior to January 1.

See the link below to the Jefferson County Assessor's office. This will answer most, if not all of your questions.

Wishep10,

There was a provision in Colorado where seniors over 65 would pay half of theeir property taxes. That provision was removed a couple of years ago and now seniors pay the full amount. I think this may be the question you are asking. If not, feel free to clarify here or contact me. My info is below.
