About Us

An Act of the Colorado General Assembly created Washington County, named for George Washington, on February 9th, 1887. Washington County ranks 12th largest of the 64 Colorado counties with a total of 2524 square miles.  The 2015 population was 4,814 yielding over 320 acres for every man, woman and child.  There are 5 school districts in Washington County: AkronArickareeLone StarOtis and Woodlin.  Most of the land is dedicated to farming and ranching.  The county is the second highest of all of the Colorado counties in wheat production.  Akron is the county seat and the southernmost part of the county is the ‘high point’ on the great plains between Denver, Colorado and Akron, Ohio with Fremont's Butte and Rocking Chair being familiar landmarks to the locals.   Washington County is a perfect place to relax, rejuvenate, and captures the honesty and determination of rural people and their families.

April 7, 2020     To:  Washington County Taxpayers

Per the Governor's Executive Order, Washington County Treasurer's office will be waiving delinquent interest on first half property tax payments that were due end of February.  You may still make that first half payment and will not be charged any late interest if payment is received in our office by April 30th, 2020.  This will give you the option of making 2 half payments with second half being due on June 15th,  instead of the full payment that is due on April 30, 2020.  You can still make your full payment and are encouraged to do so.
