The Kitsap County Treasurer announced a temporary extension of the property tax deadline until May 31, 2020. Treasurer Meredith Green encourages every person and business to pay property taxes now if they can. Importantly, these payments support the essential and emergency services we all require. However, she acknowledged that these are unusual times. “Kitsap County will temporarily extend the property tax deadline for residential and commercial taxpayers to May 31, 2020.
“The extension shall not apply to prior year delinquent taxes or intermediaries, including mortgage loan servicing companies. If taxpayers anticipate being unable to make their payment by May 31, please contact our office after April 13 at [email protected] when we may have a return to normal staffing in the office and have a payment plan program developed.”
To reduce the risk of virus transmission, Treasurer Green encourages electronic payments and reduced the e-check fee to $0.50.
