Eagle County, CO. Ranked #1

by    what the Fishwrap wont tell you!

According to Market Watch’s report on October 10th 2015…Eagle County, Colorado is Ranked #1 in the Nation.


When you read Market Watch’s report – they did not take into account – THE FACT that Eagle County, Colorado also pays the Highest Health Insurance Rates in our Nation.  (Click Here).  But don’t blame – Beaver Creek.  The folks that serve on the Avon Town Council – have orchestrated a Town of Avon (Sales Tax 9.549%) that is now HIGHER than Beaver Creek’s and is now being charged at Avon’s Wal~Mart and Home Depot.  In fact everywhere on Avon Developer (Traer Creek’s land) because of how Avon settled their (years long) lawsuit with Developer Traer Creek!


Your Taxes still NOT High Enough?

Don’t worry – if you’re an Eagle Vail Property Owner – you’ll be given the chance to raise your Property Taxes even higher (for a 30 year Bond Issue) with this November 2015’s Ballot question called 5A!

One more Eagle County FACT and Tax Due- Point!

This January 2016 your Property Taxes are GOING UP – no matter what you do, or how you may vote.

The Eagle County Assessor office (Mark Chapin) has already increased your home’s Property Valuation in 2015.  The associated Mill Levy’s will be voted on this December 2015 (per Colorado State Statue).  These new Mill Levy Rates will then be handed to the Eagle County Treasures office (Treasurer Karen Sheaffer – retiring in 2016) – then you and your Mortgage company will receive your new and HIGHER Property Tax bill, this January 2016.  Something else to consider when paying your Health Insurance Premium next month.
