First half of 2019 property taxes due by Tuesday, April 30

Sunday, April 21, 2019

Now that you've made it past Tax Day, some of you will have property tax to pay.

If you have paid off your mortgage or if you pay your property tax separate from your mortgage payment, the first half of your taxes are due by the end of the month.

Property owners in King County have until Tuesday, April 30 to pay the first half of their 2019 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:
  • Online using King County's convenient, secure online eCommerce system. Taxpayers may pay accounts with a credit card or an electronic debit from a checking account. However, you have to pay a fairly hefty service charge.
  • By mail if postmarked no later than April 30, 2019. 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. Taxpayers can find the address, phone number, and operating hours of the center in their area by visiting
    • Shoreline, Fridays only 8:30am - 4:30pm. 18050 Meridian Ave N, (inside the Shoreline District Court building) Shoreline, WA 98133. 206-477-2723
    • Seattle Downtown, Monday through Friday, 8:30am - 4:30pm* at the King County Administration Building, 500 Fourth Ave, Seattle, WA 98104, sixth floor
      • On Monday, April 29 and Tuesday, April 30, Treasury Operations will be open until 5pm.
