Property taxes are due Monday

By The Spokesman-Review

Monday is the deadline for Washington residents to pay the second half of their property taxes.

Normally the deadline is Oct. 31, but when that date falls on the weekend as it does this year, the deadline extends to Monday.

Washington property owners can make their payments in person at the treasurer’s office in the county in which they live.

In Spokane and most other counties, that’s in the county courthouse.

Some can also pay online at their county’s Web site, although there can be a fee for that.

Property owners also can mail in their payments.

In that case, the envelope carrying the payment must be postmarked by Monday or a penalty can apply.

Spokane County Deputy Treasurer Bob Wrigley said taxpayers who mail their payments on Monday should take the envelope to the post office, go inside, and make sure it is postmarked for that day.
