PORT ORCHARD — Owners of residential and commercial property in Kitsap County began receiving property value notifications beginning Sept. 28, according to the county treasurer’s office.
The “change of value” notices will be sent to 95,441 property taxpayers throughout Kitsap County, said Meredith Green, the county’s treasurer.
The notices are based on property values as of Jan. 1 of this year, or new construction as of July 31, 2020. The valuations are used to calculate property tax obligations payable in 2021.
Taxpayers can check their values and characteristics in the “Parcel Details” feature on the assessor’s website at kitsapgov.com/assessor. Sales trends in the county are also available on the website, as is information about various property tax exemption programs.
While the treasurer’s office remains closed to the public, staff members are available to answer questions by calling 360-337-7135.
