​Kitsap County Assessor

********************************************************************************

Physical inspections of properties in the South Kitsap area resume May 4th

Appraisers from the Kitsap County Assessor’s office will resume physical property inspections starting Monday, May 4.  They will be following social distancing protocols to ensure the safety of the public and staff.  Appraisers will no longer get out of their vehicles while making onsite inspections and we have discouraged appraisers from making contact with the property occupant. If you need to approach an appraiser while they are in the field, please maintain at least six (6) feet of physical distance.

The Kitsap County Assessor’s office currently remains closed to the general public; however staff is still available to provide services. Go to our online services page for information about how to get services from the Assessor's Office.

 You can contact our office during business hours by calling 360.337.7160 or by email at assessor@co.kitsap.wa.us .

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.
