What tax relief options is the Spokane County Treasurer offering?
Treasurer Michael Baumgartner previously authorized Spokane County property tax extensions totaling one hundred and five additional days to pay without delinquent charges. First half 2021 property taxes have received a one month extension from April 30th to May 31st. This extension applies to both real and personal property taxes due in Spokane County. This extension excludes mortgage loan service providers which submit escrow funds on behalf of individual taxpayers.
A landlord extension of 2020 property taxes is also in place on residential rental properties located in Spokane County financially impacted by the in-place eviction moratorium. While 2020 property taxes are due for most county taxpayers, taxpayers may submit a declaration requesting a June 30th, 2021 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Other assistance options such as partial tax payments may be an option.
