Value Notice FAQ

 "I just received my 2017 Change of Value Notice.  Is there a way to get a ballpark estimate of what my property taxes will be for 2017?"

Washington has a budget based tax system that limits the budget increase to 1% plus new construction, so your taxes won't increase more than 1% unless your property increased more in value than others in the area or the voters approve an increase above that. 

Tax rates for 2017 will not be finalized until next January.


"I would like to file an appeal, how do I do this?"

Appeal forms, information about the appeal process and contact information is available on our Appeal Page.  Click here for appeal information.

Value Notices

On June 2nd we will be mailing 98,457 residential and commercial value notices; these values will also be available on the parcel search at that time.  Properties that have experienced a change in their assessed value will receive a notice.  These values will be used to help determine your 2017 property tax obligation.  The appeal deadline is 60 days from the date of the notice.  Notices for properties with new construction will be sent later this year.  Click here for more information.

Business Personal Property Online Filing is now open

Personal Property listings for Assessment Year 2016 (Taxes Payable in 2017) were due April 30, 2016.  Listings received after the due date are subject to a 5% penalty for each month late up to 25%.  If you have not submitted the listing, you may still do so.  The available filing options are: complete the paper listing and mail, fax, email or deliver to our office; file online or email an Excel file of all assets.  The Excel file must include a brief description of the equipment, year acquired and original cost.  Please provide the business name, account number and contact information in the email.


The primary role of the Assessor's Office is to establish an assessed valuation of all real and personal property for tax purposes. The Assessor is required by law to assess all taxable property at 100% of market value.  These values are used to calculate and set levy rates for the various taxing districts in the county, and to equitably distribute tax responsibility among taxpayers.

The Assessor's office appraises property both by physical inspection and by market activity. Washington State Law mandates that property must be physically inspected at least once every six years, with annual review and update based on sales analysis.
