Physical inspection of real property in CK for 2017 assessments begins

(Port Orchard, WA) - Washington State Law (RCW 84.40.025), requires our office to conduct physical inspections of all real property throughout the county on a rotational basis. Appraisers from the Kitsap County Assessor’s Office are now conducting physical inspections throughout Central Kitsap and are expected to conclude in March, 2017.

If an appraiser from our office contacts you, comes to your door, or you see them in your neighborhood, please understand that they are trying to verify the characteristics of your property to ensure the accuracy of our data. Feel free to ask them any questions that you may have about the process. Due to the high volume of inspections staff is conducting, we are unable to accommodate appointments.

Our appraisers do not drive county issued vehicles, however their vehicles are marked with the proper county identification on both sides. Other verification options are to request to see individual credentials, check our inspection area progress map on our website at:, or contact our office at 360.337.7160.

The cooperation of the public is always appreciated by our office. We look forward to working with you and answering your questions.
