King County Assessor-elect John Wilson
King County Assessor John Wilson will be officially sworn into office in a public ceremony on January 4th at the Kent Senior Center. The oath of office will be administered by Washington State Supreme Court Justice Mary Yu.

“I picked the Kent Senior Center for my swearing in because my office will be doing extensive and deliberate outreach outside of the King County Administration building. It is time that government meet people where they are and there is no better place to start than South King County” Wilson said.

Wilson will take the oath of office followed by a brief speech where he will highlight his priorities in the coming years. Staff from the Assessor’s office will be on hand at the senior center to promote the senior property tax exemption program.

“Over the next 4 years one of my top priorities is to expand the number of seniors participating in the senior property tax exemption program. This is a right that is available to many seniors who simply don’t know about it. My office will be working hard to ensure taxpayers know the programs and options available to them."

The King County Assessor's office dates back to the mid-1800's when Washington was still a territory. Today, the office of the Assessor handles assessments of more than 660,000 residential and commercial parcels in King County valued at $388 billion in 2015.
