VANCOUVER — Property tax statements for the second half of 2017 are in the mail, Treasurer’s Office Tax Services Manager Alishia Topper announced.
Property tax statements include property tax levy amounts, special assessments and certain fees. The Treasurer’s Office sent 71,000 paper statements, 76,400 postcards to taxpayers whose mortgage companies pay their taxes, and 5,010 e-statements to people who registered to receive tax bills online.
“Property owners who pay taxes directly to the county rather than through a mortgage company should receive their statements soon,” Topper said. “If they don’t, please visit www.clark.wa.gov/treasurer or call the Treasurer’s Office at (360) 397-2252.”
If a taxpayer moved in the past six months, he or she must notify the Treasurer’s Office.
The second installment of 2017 property taxes is due Tue., Oct. 31, 2017. After that, interest and penalties will accrue.
Payments can be mailed to Clark County Treasurer, P.O. Box 9808, Vancouver, WA 98666-8808. Payments can be made in person at the Treasurer’s Office on the second floor of the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
