  •  Mass Appraisal

    The process of valuing a universe of properties as of a given date using standard methodology, employing common data, and allowing for statistical testing. This mass appraisal methodology is used in property tax assessments.


     Mill Levy

    A rate used to calculate the property tax bill sent to an individual property owner. The levy or mill levy can be converted to a decimal, then multiplied by the assessed value to calculate the taxes due. Conceptually, a mill levy is some number (x) over 1,000. So, it can be converted to a decimal by dividing the total mill levy by 1,000: 87.925 / 1,000 = .087925. Then, if a property has an assessed value of $15,000, the tax would be $ 1,318.87: $15,000 x .087925 = $1,318.87.


     Mobile Homes

    For assessment purposes in Colorado, mobile homes are classified and valued as residential property.
