****Important Announcements****


What are our appraisers doing now?

Our appraisers are currently in the field inspecting new construction. 
Properties with new construction, whether finished or not, are assessed based on the status of the property as of July 31st.  This could result in repeat visits from year to year until construction is complete.

Seeing a stranger walking on your property or a neighbor’s property can make anyone nervous.  Unfortunately, due to the number of inspections that we conduct, we cannot schedule visits ahead of time. If an appraiser needs to walk a property, he or she will knock on the door and leave a business card.  All of our appraisers use their personal vehicles for their work and use magnetic car door signs to identify themselves as Kitsap County Assessor’s Office employees.

If you have any questions or concerns or would like to verify the identity of one of our appraisers, please contact our office at: 360-337-7160.

 


Senior Citizen and Disabled Person's Exemption
income limitations increase in 2016

The Washington State Legislature has passed and the Governor has signed legislation that will amend the senior citizen and disabled person property tax exemption and deferral programs. These programs provide relief from special levies, and freeze the taxable value of the property at its current level.

Residential Change of Value Notices mailed
68,000 change-of-value notices will be arriving in the mailboxes of residential property owners after June 18.  Click here for more information.


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.
