Property taxes for second half of 2016 due October 31

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

King County property owners who pay their taxes themselves, rather than through their mortgage lender, have until Monday, October 31 to pay the second half of their 2016 property 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 property owners to pay their taxes quickly and conveniently. Tax payments can be made:
  • By mail if postmarked no later than October 31, 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.
  • Online using King County's convenient, secure online eTax application available here. Taxpayers may pay with a credit card or an electronic debit from a checking account (eCheck). The online option provides immediate payment confirmation for current year or delinquent year(s) property tax bills.
  • In person at Treasury Operations, on the sixth floor of the King County Administration Building, 500 Fourth Ave in downtown Seattle. Treasury Operations is open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm. On October 31, Treasury Operations will be open until 5pm.
  • At a King County Community Service Center if paid by check for the exact amount due. Taxpayers can find the address, phone number, and operating hours of the center in their area here. In Shoreline, the Service Center is in the District Courthouse, 18050 Meridian Ave N, Shoreline 98133.
For questions about missing tax statements or other tax payment information, contact King County Treasury Operationsor call 206-263-2890.

Some low-income seniors may be eligible for a break on their property taxes through the senior citizen tax exemption. Residents over the age of 61 making less than $40,000 per year can get information on exemption and deferral programs from the King County Assessor's Office or 206-296-3920.
