Does the Treasurer collect liens?
Yes. Counties, cities, and municipalities have the authority per the Revised Code of Washington to add liens on the property tax roll for individual parcels. This type of lien may be added at any time throughout the year. Examples of the types of liens that can be placed on the parcel are: demolition of buildings, spraying for noxious weeds on individual parcels, and delinquent assessment charges for city improvement districts.

The liens include any interest, penalty and/or cost owed the local government or municipality. The county, city or municipality will charge an additional interest rate on the principle amount due from the date certified to the treasurer until the date paid in accordance with the applicable RCW. When a lien is put on the property, it is billed and collected as real property. When making a payment, the lien amount must be included or the payment will be returned. The Treasurer cannot accept partial payments.
