Why does the Town of Parker collect so much property tax?

The Town receives many inquiries about property tax and, in particular, why the Town’s property tax is so high. While a small portion of the property tax paid by Parker residents does come to the Town to support the general fund and operations, the majority is distributed to many different governmental organizations.

For instance, on a home with an actual market value of $400,000, the Town receives only $75 in property tax each year, while other entities such as the Douglas County School District, Douglas County Government, the Parker Water and Sanitation District, and the South Metro Fire Rescue Authority, among others, also receive a portion of the property tax collected.
