“We were so far apart that had the Viceroy won, it would have drastically affected the taxing districts in Snowmass Village,” said Tom Isaac, the Pitkin County Assessor, “It would have been huge.”
ASPEN REAL ESTATE — The Pitkin County Assessor’s Office has prevailed in two more big-ticket property-value assessments that were challenged at the state level — involving the Viceroy in Snowmass Village and the Roaring Fork Club in Basalt. The state Board of Assessment Appeals recently sided with the county in both cases, according to Tom Isaac, county assessor. The decisions in the county’s favor, Isaac said, have ramifications for various local taxing districts that get a share of the property tax revenues that are collected by the county but distributed to various entities, including municipalities, fire districts, school districts and many others.
