First-Half Property Taxes Due May 2

(Port Orchard) - Meredith Green, Kitsap County Treasurer, stated that first-half property taxes are due on Monday, May 2, because April 30 falls on the weekend. If you lost or have not received your 2011 first-half tax statement, you can visit our website at www.kitsapgov.com/treas or contact the Treasurer’s Office at 360-337-7135 for a duplicate statement. Taxpayers may register on the website to receive reminders and future tax statements via email.

Taxpayers also have the option to pay property taxes online at the Treasurer’s website using e-pay, credit or debit card. The fee for e-pay is $1. Credit or debit cards are charged a convenience fee (2.5%), which Washington State statute requires.

Beginning in May, taxpayers will be offered the option of paying their property taxes on a monthly basis. In order to participate in this program taxes must be current and taxpayers must sign an agreement for automatic withdrawal. For more information, taxpayers must visit the website or call.

Due to budget cutbacks, the County Administration Building remains closed on Fridays. Taxpayers may use the drop-box outside the door on Division Street if the building is closed. Payments are typically posted within one business day and should show online within two days.

If mailing a tax payment, please mail to the Kitsap County Treasurer, PO Box 299, Bremerton, Washington 98337.

Tax payments must be postmarked by Monday, May 2, 2011, to avoid interest charges.
