Property values mailed to county owners this week

Assessments will be used to calculate property taxes

PORT ORCHARD — Kitsap County residential and commercial property owners — all 106,808 of them — should have received their change of property value notices in the mail this week.

Kitsap County Assessor Phil Cook said last week that notices went out to property owners, who should have begun receiving them on June 17.

The assessor said his office is required by state law to appraise property at 100 percent of its market value. These notices are based on property sales that have occurred since Jan. 1, 2018. Those values will be used when calculating property tax obligations payable in 2020.

Taxpayers can check their property values and characteristics in the “Parcel Details” feature on the assessor’s website at www.kitsapgov.com/assessor. Sales trends for the county are also available on the website, along with information on various property tax exemption programs.

Anyone with questions or concerns about their property value can contact the assessor’s office at 360-337-7160 or at assessor@co.kitsap.wa.us. Property owners who choose to appeal their property value to the Board of Equalization must have their appeal postmarked by Aug. 16.
