Second-Half Property Taxes Due October 31

PORT ORCHARD, WA—Barbara Stephenson, Kitsap County Treasurer, would like to remind residents that second-half 2006 property taxes are due no later than October 31, 2006. Statements for both halves are mailed annually in February; therefore, no new statements will be mailed.

Taxpayers whose taxes are not paid through a mortgage company and do not have a copy of their tax statement should call the Treasurer’s Office at 360-337-7135 for a duplicate copy, or access their tax statement online by clicking on the link at the top of the home page on the county’s website at www.kitsapgov.com. The link guides viewers to a Parcel Locator application that provides public tax information by address or tax identification number. Taxpayers can also use the Parcel Locator to determine if the tax payment they made has been posted and on what date. Taxpayers can also confirm that their mortgage company made their tax payment, if they have that arrangement. This information is available online by downloading the appropriate tax statement and clicking on “View: Receipt(s) on file.” Taxpayers are responsible for paying their second-half property taxes by October 31, 2006, in order to avoid interest and penalties.

The Treasurer’s Office also allows taxpayers to choose from a number of convenient methods for paying taxes. According to Stephenson, “We have expanded the payment options available to taxpayers, in order to make it as easy as possible for people to use the same method to pay their taxes as they are accustomed to in paying their other bills.”  

Payments may be made in person at the Treasurer’s Office, located on the 3rd floor of the Kitsap County Administration Building at 619 Division Street in Port Orchard, or checks can be mailed to Kitsap County Treasurer, PO Box 169, Port Orchard, WA 98366. Mailed payments must be postmarked no later than October 31, 2006. An E-Payment system has also been added to allow taxpayers to pay via electronic check through the Kitsap County website, which helps speed up the collection process. Taxpayers can also enroll in a debit program that automatically debits their bank account for tax payments on an ongoing basis. Payments can also be made by phone or online with a credit card.

More information about all payment methods is available online or by contacting the Treasurer’s Office at 360-337-7135.
