Washington State taxes can be paid twice a year per state law RCW 84.56.020. First half is due by April 30 and the second half is due by October 31. When a property tax account is past due (delinquent) Washington State law requires the county treasurer to assess 1% interest charged on the total amount of delinquent taxes on the 1st of each month, from the date of delinquency until paid in full.
Prior to January 1, 2022, delinquent taxes were subject to a penalty of 3% on June 1 of the year in which the tax is due. An additional penalty of 8% was assessed on the delinquent tax amount on December 1 of the year in which the tax is due. There will be no penalties assessed for 2022.
