Industrial/commercial property (buildings, land and equipment) is assessed at 29% of market value (based on a variety of factors). The state does not levy a property tax; however, counties throughout the state do. In Weld County there are 150 tax districts that overlap in a way that creates over 1,522 different tax areas and therefore mill levies which range from approximately 60.000 mills to 148.000 mills. The mill levy represents the dollars levied for each $1,000 of assessed value. For example, with a mill levy of 95.000 mills, the property owner would pay $95.00 for every $1,000 in assessed value.
State Unemployment Insurance
Unemployment insurance tax liability is based on the taxable wage base, which is the first $10,000 of each worker’s wage. It can vary depending on the industry. Detailed information about Colorado's unemployment taxes are available at the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment website.
