Tax statements were mailed Thu., Sept. 1
VANCOUVER – Clark County Treasurer Alishia Topper reminds residents that second-installment 2022 property taxes are due on Mon., Oct. 31, 2022.
Tax statements were mailed Thu., Sept. 1. If taxpayers are expecting a mailed statement and do not receive one, or have questions, they should visit www.clark.wa.gov/treasurer or contact the Treasurer’s Office at (564) 397-2252 for a duplicate statement.
“As a reminder, tax statements are mailed to property owners who do not pay through an escrow company. If a homeowner has paid off their mortgage and does not receive a statement, they should contact our office,” Topper said.
The Treasurer’s Office is recommending taxpayers pay by mail or online, but if in-person service is needed, the Treasurer’s Office is located on the second floor of the Public Service Center at 1300 Franklin St. and is open for in-person services to walk-in customers Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Topper has also planned to make available a convenient drive-through drop-off at the parking structure kiosk at the Public Service Center on Fri., Oct. 28, 2022, and Mon., Oct. 31, 2022. The kiosk is near the Franklin Street entrance to the parking garage. “Our drive-through kiosk has been a popular and convenient option for taxpayers and it will now be permanent while I’m Treasurer,” Topper said.
Taxpayers may pay property taxes online from their checking or savings account or using a credit or debit card. Payments from electronic checking and savings accounts are free, while debit card payments incur a $3.95 vendor fee, and credit card payments are assessed a 2.39 percent vendor fee.
To make a payment, go to www.clark.wa.gov/treasurer/payment-options, or call 1.833.440.8685. To register to receive your tax statement electronically and manage your property taxes online, go to https://www.paydici.com/clark-county-wa/search/landing.
Online payment transactions must be completed by midnight, Mon., Oct. 31, 2022, 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 Mon., Oct. 31, 2022, to avoid interest charges. Taxpayers are encouraged to use the return envelope and payment coupon provided with their statement to mail their payments.

You think your property taxes are bad now? Hold on to your hat when you get next year’s bills! With the exploding property values, taxes will also increase significantly. I’ve estimated my property taxes (my home) next year to be an $800-plus increase over this year’s costs… due solely on the increased value of my home.
I’m starting to feel like the current TV-ad on the Portland stations… “you can’t afford to buy a home, and if you have a home you can’t afford to keep it.”
And, as is usually the case, any “senior assistance” is designed for only the destitute or near-destitute. Those of us who have scrimped and saved all our lives and who, even in retirement, have to work a part-time gig are found to make too much money. We don’t qualify for even a modest reduction of our tax bill.
