If you have not received your 2017 tax bill, you should be seeing it soon. For those who receive a credit for the senior/veterans exemption, county treasurer Lisa Tafoya has pointed out a discrepancy in the actual valuation credit amount shown on tax bills. The old residential rate of 7.96% was used to calculate the "actual" valuation credit amount for this exemption, instead of the new residential rate of 7.2%. "This value does not affect any of the payment or mill levy data detailed on your tax bill," Tafoya said. "If you have questions or would like to verify the correct amount of the actual valuation credit amount for your senior/veterans exemption, visit www.deltacounty.com or contact the treasurer's office at 874-2135 or the assessor's office at 874-2120.
Calling all volunteers! Fort Uncompahgre on the Old Spanish Trail has received six new tipis that will be used as outdoor classrooms in conjunction with the Nature Connection.
