Property Tax Deadline Extended in King, Snohomish, and Pierce Counties
This week, as a result of the financial hardships caused by COVID-19, King, Snohomish, and Pierce counties have extended the payment deadline for property taxes to June 1, 2020.
Real property and personal property tax payments may be made by the extended deadline without interest or penalty. However, the extension only applies to property taxes for the first half of 2020. It does not apply to unpaid taxes from previous years.
Furthermore, the extension only applies to taxpayers who pay property taxes themselves. It does not apply to those who utilize their bank, mortgage lender, or other financial institution to pay property taxes on their behalf. Such financial institutions must meet the original deadline of April 30, 2020.
