Treasurer Baumgartner announced that effective Monday March 30th that he would exercise his authority during a state of emergency found in RCW 84.56.020(10) to grant an extension of the first half property tax deadline. The first half 2020 property tax payment deadline in Spokane County will be extended from April 30th to June 15th.
On August 27th, Treasurer Baumgartner authorized an extension of second half property taxes from October 31st to December 31st, 2020.
This does not mean your property tax bill goes away. First half payments regularly due April 30th will be accepted until June 15th and second half payments due October 31st will be accepted until December 31st.
The extension is not offered for prior year delinquent taxes or intermediaries, including mortgage loan servicing companies.
First half payments received after June 15th and second half payments received after December 31st will incur interest and penalty as applicable by state statute.
Those financially able to make their property tax payment by the original due dates are strongly urged to do so. Local taxing districts which include the essential and critical government services working to keep Spokane County healthy and safe rely on local property tax revenue to fund their operations.
