The drive through option is meant as a convenience and is for pre-written checks only
VANCOUVER — The Clark County Treasurer’s Office announced a pilot program for property tax payments. For first-half payments due April 30, Treasurer Alishia Topper will be opening a drive-through tax payment window.
In response to customer feedback on parking, Topper is adding a convenient drive-through drop-off at the parking structure kiosk at the Public Service Center at 1300 Franklin St. on Mon., April 29, and Tue., April 30, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The kiosk is near the Franklin Street entrance to the parking garage.
“I’m excited to give another option to taxpayers that provides convenience and saves them parking money,” Topper said. In 2018 over 1,100 customers visited the Treasurer’s Office to pay their taxes in person.
The drive through option is meant as a convenience and is for pre-written checks only. Receipts will not be provided. The Treasurer’s Office will not accept any other forms of payment at the drive-through.
If paying by cash, or if a receipt is needed, customers can pay to park and come in to the office. The Treasurer’s Office is located on the second floor of the Public Service Center at 1300 Franklin St. Office hours are Monday–Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Taxpayers may pay property taxes online using a credit or debit card or from their checking or savings account. Credit/debit card payments are assessed a 2.39 percent vendor fee, and payments from electronic checking and savings accounts will carry a $1 vendor fee.
To make a payment, go to www.clark.wa.gov/treasurer/payment-options, or call 1 (877) 778-4606. To register to receive your tax statement electronically and manage your property taxes online, go to www.clark.wa.gov/ezPropertyTax.
Payment transactions must be completed by midnight, Tue., April 30, to avoid interest charges.
Tax payments can be mailed to the Clark County Treasurer, PO Box 35150, Seattle, WA 98124-5150. Tax payments must be postmarked by Tue., April 30, 2019, to avoid interest charges. Taxpayers are encouraged to use the return envelope and payment coupon provided with their statement to mail their payments.
