The Tax Exemption Program for senior citizens and people with disabilities can reduce property tax liability for qualifying homeowners

VANCOUVER – The Clark County Assessor’s office property tax exemption specialists will be available to answer questions and enroll property owners in the county’s property tax relief program at an upcoming public event.

The Tax Exemption Program for senior citizens and people with disabilities can reduce property tax liability for qualifying homeowners. Eligibility is based on age or disability, home ownership and residence and income. Participants are not required to repay the taxes, and their homes are not subject to property liens. 

Exemption specialists will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at La Center City Hall, 210 E. Fourth St. 

To schedule an appointment for the event, call (564) 397-2391 or email taxreduction@clark.wa.gov. Walk-ins also are welcome. Homeowners interested in attending should bring photo ID, federal tax return, W-2 and/or 1099, and any deduction documentation.

    As is usual, upon reviewing the qualifications, no relief is available to fixed-income retirees who have been responsible, planned for their retirement, and have a bit of money saved for their retirement years.

    It is frightening to see how much property taxes have increased. In 2018, I paid $2,840 for a 1,680 sq ft home. In 2023, for the same home, I’m paying $3,855… an increase of $1,015 which is a 35.7% increase in 5 yrs.

    When seniors are retired with fixed incomes, and who responsibly saved a bit of money for their retirement years, why isn’t there at least some modest assistance available?

    Yet our streets remain in disrepair, the homeless-filthy-drug-addled-mentally-ill still line our sidewalks and byways, property crime is nearly out of control, and drug abuse is now normalized with everyone expected to carry naloxone.

    How’s them taxes treatin’ ya, Clark Co. citizens? Gettin’ your money’s worth?

    PS: I don’t buy into the naloxone kool-aid. I feel it’s a perfect example of darwin-ism cleaning out the gene-pool. I walk right by ’em and I sleep very well at night.
