King County property tax deadline approaches
October 23, 2012
Oct. 31 is the deadline for King County homeowners to pay property tax bills.
Taxpayers should include the tax statement and write the property tax account number on a check or money order to pay by mail.
Homeowners can pay property taxes online or by check, cash or credit card in person at King County Treasury Operations, Room 600, 500 Fourth Ave., Seattle. The office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays. The office is scheduled to remain open until 5 p.m. Oct. 31.
Or use the secure payment system at www.kingcounty.gov/propertytax.
The statement is sent to the lender if a property owner relies on a mortgage company to pay the bill. However, the taxpayer is responsible for the bill to be paid in a timely manner.
