1st Half 2015 Property Tax Statements mailed
Doug Lasher, Clark County Treasurer, announced that first-installment 2015 property tax statements have been mailed. Property tax statements include property tax levy amounts, special assessments, and certain fees. There were 94,852 statements mailed, 73,846 postcards mailed for those taxpayers whose mortgage company pays their taxes, and 881 e-statements sent. “Taxpayers whose statements are not paid through a mortgage company and have not received their statement within ten days should visit our web site at www.clark.wa.gov/treasurer or call the Treasurer’s Office at (360) 397-2252.” Taxpayers are responsible for paying their first-installment property taxes by Thursday, April 30, 2015, in order to avoid interest and penalties.” In addition, if a taxpayer has moved within the past six months, the Treasurer’s Office needs to be notified because it does not receive address changes made through the post office.
The Treasurer’s Office is located at 1300 Franklin Street, second floor of the Public Service Center, which is one block north of the Clark County Court House.
Taxpayers receiving a tax statement are encouraged to use the return envelope to mail in their payment, simple and easy. If mailing a payment, it should be mailed to the Clark County Treasurer, PO Box 9808, Vancouver, Washington 98666-8808.
Other options for taxpayers to pay their property taxes are by going on-line at www.clark.wa.gov/treasurer or by phone call 1-877-778-4606. These payment options are by credit card or their checking/savings account. While credit card payments are assessed a 2.39% convenience fee, the checking/savings method is only $1 per transaction. Payment transactions must be completed by midnight, April 30, 2015, to avoid interest charges.
Before mailing delinquent taxes or assessments, taxpayers should check on the Treasurer’s website or call the Treasurer’s Office at (360) 397-2252 to determine the correct amount to pay.
Senior or disabled citizens may qualify for an exemption on their property taxes. Call the Clark County Assessor’s Office at (360) 397-2391 for more information
