Treasurer

The Las Animas County Treasurer's Office is responsible for the collection of all real estate, personal property, mineral rights, manufactured housing and Colorado State assessed taxes.

We also process redemptions, priors, assignments, pre-pays, endorsements, supplemental taxes, special assessments, tax certificates, and tax lien certificates.

We issue moving permits, manufactured home authentifications, and distraints for manufactured homes.

We process abatements, cancellations, omitted property and balance tax collections. We prepare and mail tax notices, and applications for Treasurer's Deeds. We maintain receipts and disbursements of all the various funds as mandated by state statute. We monitor the activity of these funds daily and reconcile each fund monthly to the master fund ledger.

The Las Animas County Treasurer's Office serves as a collection agency for all Las Animas County Departments.

The Las Animas County Treasurer's Office prepares the fund ledger, warrant & miscellaneous reports, annual - semi-annual reports - monthly reports for the Las Animas County Commissioners.

Our reports to the State of Colorado include abatements, homestead (senior exemption) and veteran's reports.

In the Las Animas County Public Trustee Office, we are mandated by Colorado State Law to administer real estate fore-closures, and for releasing liens when a mortgage is paid off.
