For property tax years commencing on or after January 1, 2022, the
  • Increases the maximum amount of actual value of the
owner-occupied residence of a qualifying senior or veteran
with a disability that is exempt from property taxation from
$200,000 to $400,000; and
  • Specifies that a senior is deemed to be a 10-year
owner-occupier of a primary residence that the senior has
owned and occupied for less than 10 years and therefore
qualifies for the senior property tax exemption for the
residence if:
  • The senior would have qualified for the senior
property tax exemption for the senior's former
primary residence but for the fact that medical
necessity required the senior to stop occupying the
former primary residence;
  • The senior has not previously received the
exemption for a former primary residence on the
basis of medical necessity; and
  • The senior has not owned and occupied another
primary residence since the senior first stopped
occupying his or her former primary residence due
to medical necessity.
Medical necessity is defined as a medical condition of a senior that a
physician licensed to practice medicine in Colorado has certified, on a
form developed by the state property tax administrator, as having required
the senior to stop occupying the senior's prior primary residence.
When applying for an exemption on the basis of medical necessity,
a senior must provide the form establishing proof of medical necessity.
