Commercial and residential new construction change of value notices mailed

(Port Orchard, WA) -  Approximately 6,000 change-of-value notices will be arriving in the mailboxes of commercial & residential new construction property owners after September 19, 2015.

Sales trends have been analyzed through March 31, 2015 to make the state required adjustments to property values for tax year 2016. With real estate values improving over the previous year, these notices are being mailed to inform property owners of their new value.

Property owners can also check their property values on the “Parcel Search” feature of the Assessor’s website at www.kitsapgov.com/assr. Sales trends for the county are also available in the “sales” tab on the left side of the site.

Property owners with questions or concerns about their new taxable value for 2016 may contact the Assessor’s Office at 360.337.7160 or email assessor@co.kitsap.wa.us to review property characteristics and have any questions answered. Property owners who receive these notices will have until November 20, 2015 to appeal their value with the County Board of Equalization. Information about property tax relief programs is also available.
