Clark County Treasurer Alishia Topper today announced that property tax statements for 2021 are set to mail within the next week.
Property tax statements include property tax levy rates, amounts, special assessments and certain fees.
The Treasurer’s Office is sending 95,672 paper statements and 3,428 e-statements to people who registered to receive tax bills online.
“Property owners who pay taxes directly to the county rather than through a mortgage company should receive their statements by next week,” Topper said. “Property owners who don’t receive a statement can visit www.clark.wa.gov/treasurer or call the Treasurer’s Office at 564.397.2252.”
“If a homeowner has recently bought a home or paid off their mortgage, I encourage them to check their property tax account,” said Topper. “We see many homeowners who pay off their mortgage and don’t realize they are now responsible for paying their taxes.”
Taxpayers who have moved in the past six months must notify the Treasurer’s Office.
The first installment of 2021 property taxes is due Friday, April 30, 2021. After that, interest and penalties will accrue.
Although in-person services are currently unavailable due to COVID-19, taxpayers still have several payment options:
- Pay online using an e-check from a checking or savings account. E-Checks are free.
- Pay online using a debit or credit card. Debit transactions are a flat rate of $3.95 and credit card transactions are assessed a 2.39% vendor fee.
- Mail payments to Clark County Treasurer, PO Box 35150, Seattle, WA 98124-5150. Tax payments must be postmarked by Friday, April 30, to avoid interest charges. Taxpayers are encouraged to use the return envelope and payment coupon provided with their statement.
- Pay by phone by calling 1.833.440.8685.
