My property tax bill keeps getting higher, so why does the county still need more money?

For every dollar the county collects from property taxes, only 24 cents remain with the county to provide services. The remaining 76 cents go to public schools, special districts and cities. Even though the economy is growing and property values continue to increase, the amount of property tax revenue the county is allowed to collect is constrained by TABOR and is not adequate to support the growing demand for services.
