Who are we?
Under Colorado law, county assessors must list and calculate the value of all real and personal property for tax purposes. The Las Animas County Assessor's office is comprised of land administration professionals, appraisers and data analysts who are dedicated to protecting property rights by ensuring accurate and appropriate determination of taxation through fair and equitable property valuation.
In addition to the determination of Las Animas County property values, the Assessor's office:
- Analyzes trends in property sales markets
- Verifies properties eligible for exemption
- Maintains an updated and accurate list of building descriptions and property characteristics and tracks property ownership changes
- Maintains parcel boundary maps
Note: the recent survey (2016) sent out by the Assessor's Office is an agricultural questionnaire mandated by the State of Colorado.
