WHO FILES A DECLARATION SCHEDULE? All owners and/or operators of oil or gas skid-mounted rotary drilling rigs that have been operated, stored (stacked), or
maintained in a Colorado county during the prior calendar year must file this schedule. In addition, the owner of all personal property as of January 1 must file a declaration
schedule. All taxable personal property, such as leased or owned equipment that accompanies the drilling rig, must be listed on this schedule. Use one declaration schedule per
drilling rig.
ARE YOU A NEW OWNER? If you answer "yes" to this question or you have never filed with the county assessor, you are required to provide a complete listing of the drilling
rig, any auxiliary equipment, and any other personal property used in conjunction with the drilling rig in Colorado. For auxiliary or leased personal property, please include:
 Item ID Number  Property Description  Model Number  Year Acquired  Original Installed Cost To You, and  If the Property Was Not Put Into Use as of January 1 of
the current year.
Drilling Rigs can only be valued for the days they were traveling in, were operated or maintained within, or were stored (stacked) in Colorado. The assessor in the county of
original assessment (COA) values the rig and apportions the value among the counties listed on the drilling log. This apportionment is accomplished by multiplying the calculated
total actual value per day by the number of days the rig was located in each county during the previous calendar year. On or before June 15, the assessor of the COA furnishes a
copy of the actual valuation of the rig, the apportionment working papers, and the Notice of Valuation (NOV) for the COA-apportioned actual value to the owner or operator. The
assessor of the COA also sends the actual valuation, apportionment working papers, and copies of the drilling log to every county assessor involved. These assessors send their
NOV’s for their apportioned actual values to the taxpayer on or before June 15.
WHEN DO YOU FILE? This form must be received by the county assessor by the April 15 deadline EVERY YEAR that the rig is operated, stored (stacked), or maintained in
HOW DO YOU FILE FOR AN EXTENSION AND WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU FAIL TO FILE? You may extend the deadline if, prior to April 15, the assessor receives
your written request AND $20 for a 10-day extension, or $40 for a 20-day extension. This extension applies to all drilling rig schedules that a person is required to file in the
county. The late filing penalty is $50, or 15% of the taxes due, whichever is less. If you fail to file a schedule, the assessor may determine a valuation based upon the BEST
INFORMATION AVAILABLE and may add a penalty of up to 25% of assessed value for any omitted property discovered and valued later.
