Property tax valuation notices were mailed to all Island County residential property owners on Aug. 1 according to the Island County Assessor.

These notices will provide taxpayers with the Assessor’s opinion of value on residential properties. This value represents market value as of Jan. 1, 2012, based on market evidence from sales occurring in 2011.

Value notices for commercial properties will be mailed in mid August, along with new construction value notices.

Mary Engle, Island County Assessor, encourages taxpayers to call the Assessor’s office with any concerns or questions about their property values.

“Appraisers are happy to talk with you about how they established the market value of your property,” she said.

To reach the appraiser assigned to your area call 360-679-7303 Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Taxpayers have 30 days from the date of mailing listed on the notice to appeal their property value with the local board of equalization,” said Engle.

Appeal information will be on the mailing notice and on the Assessor’s website. Call 360-678-7851 for information or questions.
