Tax statements are mailed annually, generally during the second half of February. Tax statements are sent to the last known address on file. Please remember to keep your address current with our office. If you do not receive your statement by March 1, please contact our office to make sure we have your correct mailing address.
If the ownership of a property has changed after the original statements have been mailed, an additional statement will be mailed to the new Grantee. If you have not received a statement within thirty days of purchase, please contact us.
Failure to receive a tax statement does not waive your responsibility to pay your property taxes when due.
Under state law, any tax or assessment under $50 is due in full on April 30th; otherwise, they may be paid in half installments with the first half due no later than April 30th and the second half due no later than October 31st. If April 30 or October 31 falls on a weekend or state holiday, taxes are due on the next business day, either in person or postmark accepted. If using the postal service, please make sure to deposit your envelope before the mail box is emptied. Some mail boxes are emptied quite early in the afternoon and tax payments deposited in a mail box that has already been emptied for the day will be post-marked the next business day.

Any amount paid incorrectly will be applied as a partial payment. It is the taxpayer's responsibility to know what you owe. If you choose to pay an amount other than what is showing on you current year tax statement, we will apply the amount you paid to the next due amount. We will not provide additional statements or notices regarding unpaid balances. If the taxpayer does not pay the remaining balance, they will receive a delinquent notice in May and/or November.
To minimize paying an amount in error, please verify the amount due on this webpage (property search) or please call 360-417-2344.
We will issue a refund for any amount over $10. Refunds will be issued a minimum of 15 days after the original payment has been posted and has cleared the banking process. Refunds are issued twice monthly on or about the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month.
