The Spokane County treasurer’s office will restore full office hours today for last-minute property tax payments.
Chief Deputy Treasurer Bob Wrigley said the office will be open from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m to let property owners pay first-half taxes without penalty.
The office ordinarily closes at 1 p.m. on Fridays and at 4 p.m. other weekdays.
Wrigley said taxpayers are encouraged to pay by mail, though payments must be postmarked by today. Property owners who pay half of their taxes by today may wait until Oct. 31 to pay the rest.
For an additional fee, payments can be made online or by calling (800) 272-9829. More information is available by clicking on the “Billing and Payments” link of the treasurer’s website, www.spokanecounty.org/treasurer.
