A: In Colorado, property owners are generally notified about tax liens and given a specific period to address the outstanding taxes. If the owner is deceased and there is an ongoing probate process, the resolution of tax matters may be addressed as part of the probate proceedings, which can vary in duration depending on the circumstances. It's advisable to consult with a probate attorney to navigate the situation effectively.
