GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO News)-- This week you may have already received your tax bills in the mail.
The tax bills from 2019 that are due in 2020 were sent out on Friday.
But if you've already received one, you may have noticed that it looks a little bit different.
This bill now tells taxpayers what they are paying on their property taxes. It has a dynamic pie chart to show where taxes are going. The Mesa County Treasurers office says they have been receiving a number of questions from residents about this new look.
"They've gotten a bill in the past but it looked different and it may have felt more like a statement than it does today. But it's the same thing. If someone has a mortgage and they've got escrow coming out of their mortgage payment for the coverage of taxes and typically insurance, then that doesn't change," says Sheila Reiner, Mesa County Treasurer.
To pay this bill, the treasurer's office says you can pay either two half payments: one in February, one in June. Or you can pay the entire amount by April 30th without penalty.
If you have more than one tax bill coming to your address in the same name, it will now be packaged into one envelope.
Also included in the bill this year is a statement as to what you are getting in your Tabor credit. This comes from the resolution passed to include a property tax credit in order to pay back the Tabor overage from 2019.
