About Us

Virginia Trujillo

The County Treasurer is a Constitutional Officer, elected to a four-year term.

The Office of the Custer County Treasurer has responsibility for the collection, custody and distribution of county funds. The collection process consists of the preparation and dispatching of annual tax notices, including delinquent taxes, for all real estate in Custer County.

The Treasurer holds an annual tax lien sale in an effort to gather outstanding tax monies which are due.

The Treasurer's Office is the official source for all Certificates of Taxes Due. Once tax funds have been collected, the Treasurer's Office distributes monies to the various entities for whom taxes are collected, including school districts within the County.

The Treasurer invests County funds with the direct goal of receiving a maximum return rate, while maintaining integrity and safety. The Treasurer's Office serves as a general collection agency for all County Departments and is responsible for maintaining the records and payments for all Custer County Warrants issued.

The Treasurer's Office adheres to all requirements of the Colorado Revised Statutes and is responsible for administering all new laws relating to these Statutes.

The Custer County Treasurer's Office is open from 8am to 4pm, Monday - Friday
