If you own property in Denver then you have probably already received your property evaluations. However if you think that your property was assessed at an astronomically high rate there are some new procedures in place to make dealing with it allot simpler. The deadline to file a protest is now November 15th, which is a considerably longer amount of time than in previous years. Also several steps in the protest procedure have been combined into one single appeal.
Due to troubles with the California franchise tax board’s website the mandatory epay penalty can be waived:
“Due to the problems encountered by mandatory e-pay taxpayers with our website on April 15, we will waive the mandatory e-pay penalty for taxpayers that paid their tax, extension, or estimated tax payment by check.
