Interest =  1% per month on the full amount due (from month of delinquency to month of payment) as prescribed by law.

Penalty =   3% on June 1 (current year tax only).

8% on December 1 (current year tax only) as prescribed by law

TAX STATEMENTS ARE MAILED OUT ONCE A YEAR.

If you have not received your tax statement by the 1st of April, Please contact the Treasurer’s Office.

  • If your mortgage company is no longer paying your taxes, it is the responsibility of the property owner to notify the change of status to the Treasurer’s office.
  • Contact the Treasurer’s Office immediately to provide us with the correct mailing address to send the tax statement.

 

As the law states in RCW 84.56.020, RCW 84.56.025 and RCW 84.56.050 failure to receive a tax statement does not relieve you of your responsibility for tax payment. The law presumes that everyone knows that property taxes are due and payable every year. Failure to pay property taxes on time will accrue late fees and penalties. The fact that you did not receive your tax statement is not an adequate reason for a waiver of these penalties.

SENIOR CITIZENS AND DISABLED PERSONS

If you are 62 years of age or older or disabled, own the house you live in, and have an annual income of $40,000 or less, you may be entitled to a full or partial property tax exemption. For information and application, contact the Asotin County Assessor’s Office at (509) 243-2016 or at 135 2nd Street, Asotin, WA  99402.

TAXES PAID UNDER PROTEST
