Property values have soared in Colorado. That is costing families a property tax increase of 20-30 percent this year. Governor Jared Polis signed a bill to give Coloradans a two year reduction on their property taxes by subsidizing them with tax payer money. With rising home costs and the affordable housing crisis in our state, Polis should put a cap on the property tax permanently and not as just another election year ploy. A measure aimed at capping property tax rates failed to make the ballot this year. So, no relief is in sight, yet! We need a governor who will look to preemptively save you money and not tax you into oblivion.
