An alignment is useful after a while. I recently had mine done and, although the car went straight, there were adjustments required that might explain faster tire wear. Cost me ~110$CAD though, not 275$, you might want to bring your business elsewhere.

Checking brake oil is always good and it's cheap so why not do it. Change oil if water content is too high.

Change wipers when you start having bad vision when it rains, don't cheap on it, your safety's at stake. Just like brakes.

AC filters can wait until you get bad smells I would think...

Tire rotation is only required if the diameters front-back is different. Buy a 5$ tool to check thread depth yourself.

EDIT: My model 3 benefits from a yearly brake cleaning and lubricating as I live where it snows and we use salt on the roads. Brake pins jam otherwise. Maybe your car would also benefit in Colorado?

I second the recommendation to do the annual brake cleaning and lubrication, speaking from Mass. where we got enough snow and lots of road salt.
