When I purchased my first home, I remember asking what PITI meant (Principal, Interest, Taxes & Insurance). So,what happens if you DON'T pay taxes? Well, someone else can end up owning your property.

Tax Lien

Larimer County Treasurer, Myrna Rodenberger, urges all taxpayers who have not paid their property taxes to do so as soon as possible. The last day to pay to avoid 'Tax Lien Sale'  is Tuesday, November 13th by 4:30 p.m.  This will prevent the taxpayer from paying additional delinquent interest and fees.

The Larimer County Annual Tax Lien Sale will be held on Thursday, November 15th at The Ranch, Thomas M. McKee Building, in Loveland.  Doors will open at 7:30 a.m., and the sale will begin at 8:30 a.m.  A tax lien will be offered on any property with a tax balance not paid by Tuesday, November 13th.

There are 1,192 real property and 74 mobile home delinquent accounts in Larimer County. As the winning bidder, you'd get a return on your investment in one of two ways: interest on your bid amount, or ownership of the property. Read more: Buying a home in a tax lien sale
