Do you know about the historic property tax relief effort in Douglas County?

Join a Live Town Hall at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 24

Posted on January 16, 2024 2024Economic Foundations


Own a home or other property in Douglas County? A historic mill levy reduction by Douglas County Commissioners means you’ll be getting a relief check later this year, so long as your tax bill has been paid. But long-term property tax reform is still needed.

Join the ongoing conversation about property tax relief and reform during a Live Town Hall at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 24.

To join online, visit douglas.co.us/townhall. Join via phone by calling 833-380-0668, or simply answer the phone when we call to invite you to join us. To receive a call just before a Live Town Hall begins, visit douglas.co.us/townhall to register.

In 2023, Douglas County homeowners experienced the largest increase in home values in state history. Throughout the year, the Board of Douglas County Commissioners acted to mitigate this impact through advocacy with state lawmakers and engagement with you. They also took local action.

In their capacity as the County Board of Equalization they reduced residential property values by 4%, which was later rescinded by the State Board of Equalization (get an update here). As part of the 2024 budget, they reduced the County’s mill levy by a historic 18.6%.

“We know our residents are facing huge increases in their property taxes. We have done everything we can as Commissioners to reduce that,” said Commissioner Lora Thomas. “But that was just for this year’s property taxes. We need a long-term solution. We hope you’ll join this Live Town Hall and continue to engage with us.”
