Assessor response to COVID-19 -

Based on the most recent information received from the Kitsap County Health Department and what we believe is in the best interest of our employees and the general public, the Kitsap County Assessor has made the decision to close our office to the general public until further notice.  

Our staff will still be available during normal business hours via phone and email.

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.
