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 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. If covered for the first time, the tax rate will be 1.7% of the wage base or a rate equal to the industry average, whichever is greater. Upon the 3rd and 4th years of coverage, the rate is changed to a computed rate based on the employer’s individual experience.
