I’m bringing awareness to another predatory tactic against homeowners with tax liens.

Please contact my office directly at 720-523-6160 if you receive this notice or anything resembling someone trying to help you with a tax lien.

ADAMS COUNTY, Colo — The Adams County Treasurer is warning home owners of a scam that is spreading around the state, and if you fall victim you could end up losing your home.

Many homeowners with delinquent tax liens have received a letter threatening that the ownership of their home could be in jeopardy and an offer to help pay their tax lien.

“It’s kind of a scare tactic and our message today is that if you get a letter like this or something that resembles this, it’s best that you call the treasurer’s office,” Adams County Treasurer Brigitte Grimm said.

Adams County told the FOX31 Problem Solvers that they are seeing numerous records requests for the list of 2,100 delinquent tax liens in their county. A sign that scammers are looking for targets.

“We got a number of calls yesterday, so we suspect this letter just went out,” Grimm said. “There is no third party that can assist in reducing your taxes.”

Grimm told the Problem Solvers there’s nothing to negotiate when it comes to delinquent tax liens held against your property, so these people that say they can help you – can’t.

“We want to make sure nobody is losing their homes to unpaid taxes,” Grimm said. “But we also want to make sure there is not another party involved that is possibly charging a fee for a service they can’t provide. That has to come from the treasurer’s office.”

Eye on Adams Allows for Customizable Tracking of County Operations
 
Furthering its commitment to innovation and integrity, Adams County’s Business Solutions Group is introducing “Eye on Adams.” The “Eye on Adams” application will allow users to navigate maps to track land use cases, building permits, code violations and other operations in unincorporated Adams County.
 
This application is available on personal computers and mobile devices by following the link https://adamscounty.buildingeye.com.
 
“We are excited to be the first county in the nation to offer this application that will allow our residents and business owners the ability to customize the issues they want to track,” said County Manager Todd Leopold. “Users can look at everything from liquor licenses to graffiti reports and they can do it by zip code, neighborhood, commissioner districts or other customized boundaries. There is no question that our Business Solutions Group has created a citizen engagement solution that will serve as the model for other local governments to follow.”
 
“Eye on Adams” uses software from Building Eye to directly pull data dating back five years from Accela, the software the county’s Community & Economic Development Department uses to track permits, violations, and land use cases. The software will allow users to navigate maps, filter for areas of interest and create automated email alerts for their neighborhoods or special districts in unincorporated Adams County.
