Treasurer & Assessor offices open Fridays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

(Port Orchard, WA)  Beginning April 4, the Assessor and Treasurer’s offices will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays. Hours for electronic Real Estate Excise Tax (eREET) processing will also be adjusted to 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In 2009, the Treasurer and Assessor offices closed on Fridays due to budget cutbacks, and staff members’ hours were reduced. Both offices worked to provide service via the internet so that taxpayers could transact business whenever they wanted to, but a limited number of transactions still need to be processed in person. In November 2013, the Treasurer began processing eREET transactions on Friday. County Commissioners recently approved an increase in funding to the Treasurer’s office which allows for the expanded hours to serve taxpayers on Fridays.

Taxpayers are also reminded that first half property taxes must be paid or postmarked no later than April 30, 2014.
