Welcome to the Kitsap County Assessor's Office website!

The primary role of the Assessor's Office is to establish an assessed valuation of all real and personal property for tax purposes. The Assessor is required by law to assess all taxable property at 100% of market value.  These values are used to calculate and set levy rates for the various taxing districts in the county, and to equitably distribute tax responsibility among taxpayers.

The Assessor's office appraises property both by physical inspection and by market activity. Washington State Law mandates that property must be physically inspected at least once every six years, with annual review and update based on sales analysis.

Value Notices Are Coming
Change-of-value notices will be mailed to about 90,000 Kitsap County property owners on July 11th. The notice reports the assessor’s estimate of market value as of January 1, 2014. Most owners will see a slight increase when compared to the January 1, 2013 assessed value. Click for more information
