The resident rebate has begun and will run from May 1 - August 31.

All qualified residents must fill out an application each year and provide proof of income. New applicants are required to submit a lawful presence affidavit with a valid photo ID for each person in the household over the age of 18. Existing applicants will have an application mailed to their home while new applicants will need to retrieve an application on this site beginning in May or they can come into the office.

About the Resident Rebate Program

The City of Arvada offers tax rebates to qualified residents through the Resident Tax Rebate Program. The Program runs from May through August. Rebate amounts are $85 for the first person and $50 for additional persons. Partial residency rebates are offered on a pro-rated basis.


You may be qualified for the Resident Tax Rebate Program if you lived within the Arvada City limits in 2017 and meet one of the following criteria:

  • Senior citizen: Age 65 by December 31, 2017; or
  • Single: Between the age of 55 and 65 by December 31, 2017 and does not share the household with another adult; or
  • Disabled person; or
  • Single head of household with dependent children;

AND, the gross income for the entire household from all sources, including Social Security, is equal to or less than the annual income limit set yearly by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Required Documents

Documentation must be provided each year for all income sources and bank statements cannot be accepted. Residency information must also be provided. Residency can be established with:

  • Copy of a lease agreement or rental receipts for all 2017.
  • Copy of 2017 City of Arvada utility bill in applicant’s name.
  • Other 2017 documents accepted at the discretion of City staff.

Prior applicants will have applications mailed to their homes. Note that new applicants must fill out an affidavit of lawful presence for each person over 18 in the household along with a valid photo ID. Rebates cannot be processed until we receive the completed application, affidavit/ID/proof of residency (if necessary), and all income documents.
