Denver has a new City and County Assessor. Keith Erffmeyer was named to the post after the Department of Finance launched a nationwide search in April.
Erffmeyer worked his way up the ranks in the Assessor's Office the past 20 years. He started as an intern in 1994 and later became a senior-level appraiser and earned a Certified General Appraisal License. In 2005, Erffmeyer became the Commission Section Supervisor and was promoted to Deputy Assessor/Chief Appraiser in 2009.
Denver's Assessment Division appraises all real and personal property. The Assessor directs and oversees the efforts of five teams: Administration, Business Personal Property, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) Tax Mapping, Information Management and Real Property.
