What are our appraisers doing now?

Beginning in August our appraisers will be inspecting properties on Bainbridge Island.  These inspections are part of the county inspection cycle that will be used in the calculation of your 2017 property taxes.  Value notices that will be mailed next summer will reflect information collected during these inspections. 

Seeing a stranger walking on your property or a neighbor’s property can make anyone nervous.  Unfortunately, due to the number of inspections that we conduct, we cannot schedule visits ahead of time. If an appraiser needs to walk a property, he or she will knock on the door and leave a business card.  All of our appraisers use their personal vehicles for their work and use magnetic car door signs to identify themselves as Kitsap County Assessor’s Office employees.

If you have any questions or concerns or would like to verify the identity of one of our appraisers, please contact our office at: 360-337-7160 or email:


Senior Citizen and Disabled Person's Exemption
income limitations increase in 2016

The Washington State Legislature has passed and the Governor has signed legislation that will amend the senior citizen and disabled person property tax exemption and deferral programs. These programs provide relief from special levies, and freeze the taxable value of the property at its current level.

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.
