When will the Treasurer’s Office re-open to the public?

The Treasurer’s Office is currently closed to the public due to the Governor's state of emergency safe start orders. Customers are not being served in-person as you may be accustomed to. Treasurer’s Office staff is available by phone and email Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:00pm to help. 

While there is not currently a set date for re-opening, we anticipate an opening date once Spokane County reaches phase III of the Governor’s re-opening plan which allows for larger public gatherings and in-person government services to resume.

What tax relief options is the Spokane County Treasurer offering?

Treasurer Michael Baumgartner authorized a first half 2020 property tax extension from April 30th to June 15th. This extension applies to both real and personal 2020 property taxes in Spokane County. This extension excludes mortgage loan service providers which submit escrow funds on behalf of individual taxpayers.

Second half property taxes have been extended from October 31st to December 31. This extension also applies to both real and personal 2020 property taxes in Spokane County and excludes mortgage loan service providers which submit escrow funds on behalf of individual taxpayers. 

Treasurer Baumgartner  also authorized an additional extension to December 31st for first half property taxes for landlords/property managers on Spokane County parcels directly impacted by the Governor’s statewide eviction moratorium which currently expires on October 15th. While the first half deadline remains June 15th for most property owners in Spokane County, taxpayers may submit a declaration requesting a December 31st extension on residential rental properties effected by the moratorium.

If you are still struggling to make your property tax payment, please contact our office at (509) 477-4713 or treasurer@spokanecounty.org. Other assistance options such as partial tax payments may be an option.
