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.
A collaborative effort between the Delta County Sheriff's Office and municipal law enforcement agencies throughout Delta County has resulted in a proposal for a 1 percent sales tax increase to fund public safety. A PowerPoint presentation titled "Back the Badge" is starting to make the rounds at city/town council meetings, service club luncheons and other events.
