Property owners in King County who do not pay property tax with their mortgage have until Monday, May 1 to pay the first half of their 2017 taxes.
After that date, interest charges and penalties will be added to the tax bill.
To make the process easier, King County provides several ways for taxpayers to pay their taxes quickly and conveniently. Tax payments can be made:
- Online using King County's convenient, secure online eTax application. Taxpayers may pay accounts with a credit card or an electronic debit from a checking account.
- By mail if postmarked no later than May 1, 2017. Taxpayers should include their tax statement and write the property tax account number on their check or money order. Cash should not be sent through the mail.
- At King County Community Service Centers if paid by check for the exact amount due.
- Shoreline Community Service Center (inside the Shoreline District Court building), 18050 Meridian Ave N, Shoreline, WA 98133, 206-477-2723. Schedule: Fridays, 8:30am - 4:30pm. Service is suspended for 15 minutes at 10:15am and 3pm, and for one hour at noon for mandated employee breaks.
