If your property tax payment is not handled by your mortgage company, be aware that taxes are due for the first half of 2016.

The normal due date is April 30, but because April 30 falls on a Saturday, property taxpayers in King County have until Monday, May 2.

To make the process easier, King County provides several ways for residents to pay their property taxes quickly and easily.
  • 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 2, 2016. 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 the Shoreline District Court at 18050 Meridian, if paid by check for the exact amount due. Other locations listed here.
  • In person at Treasury Operations, sixth floor of the King County Administration Building, 500 Fourth Ave. in Seattle. Hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. On Friday, April 29 and Monday, May 2, Treasury Operations will be open until 5 p.m.
    • Taxpayers visiting the Administration Building should be aware that the county-owned Goat Hill Garage at Fifth and Jefferson is closed to public parking until mid-May. Visit the garage's project page for alternative parking in the area, or learn about public transportation options
For questions about missing tax statements or other tax payment information, see the webpage, email, King County Treasury Operations, or call a customer service specialist at 206-263-2890.
