Colorado state sales tax is 2.9%. Various municipalities add their own taxes, as do taxing districts such as the RTD (Regional Transit District in metro Denver), football stadium taxing district, baseball stadium taxing district, SCFD (Scientific and Cultural Facitlities District tax), etc.

If retired and over age 55, COLO exempts the first $20k of each retirees COLO taxable income. Thusly, 4.63% of $20k = $926 benefit per retiree per year.
I was looking at some available homes in the Durango area a few weeks ago. I would come across properties between 500,000- 699,000 and the property taxes would be 900-1500. I don't get it.

Probably taxes in those counties are very low; it certainly bears checking with that county, your realtor or the listing agent.

Thanks for the interesting information. Can I get some Cadbury bars too. My old Boss went back and forth from England to US and would bring me some "real" Cadbury chocolate and it was great!
