Kitsap County launches “Property Tax Distribution 101”
ORCHARD, WA—Thanks to Kitsap County’s new, useful and
illustrative “Property Tax Distribution 101” website, with just a few clicks
anyone can find out exactly how property taxes are distributed per parcel
among the various taxing districts in Kitsap County.
“As we continue to work hard to inform and bring value to the people of
Kitsap County, the “Property Tax Distribution 101” website offers a wealth
of valuable information in a clear and easy-to-use format,” Board of
Commissioners Chair Josh Brown said.
Created in-house by the Kitsap County Information Services Department, the
“Property Tax Distribution 101” website features colorful charts that show
how property taxes are dispersed among the various taxing districts,
including the state of Washington, schools, fire, Kitsap County, ports,
library and public utilities. The website also displays charts that show
what each tax district (fire, school, library, port, etc.) has received in
property taxes over the last five years, and another chart that compares the
overall distribution of property taxes.
To view the “Property Tax Distribution 101” website, simply click on the
Kitsap County website at www.kitsapgov.com and look in the “County
Spotlight” box at the top of the home page.
