WALLA WALLA — It’s property tax time, part two.
Starting this year, however, the Walla Walla County Treasurer’s Office is no longer mailing notices to property owners for the second-half of their annual tax payments. The change is intended to save costs.
County Treasurer Gordon Heimbigner is reminding payers that their property taxes are due Oct. 31. Payments should be mailed to the Treasurer’s Office, P.O. Box 777, and need to be postmarked by Oct. 31 to avoid being late.
Tax payments can also be deposited in the drop box behind the courthouse or at Baker Boyer Bank’s downtown office at 7 W. Main St.
In addition, payments can be made by credit card or electronic check through the Treasurer’s Office website.
Those forms of payment, however, will be charged a fee by credit card companies, Heimbigner said.
The Treasurer’s Office receives no part of that fee.
People may also opt to receive and pay property tax bills by using the free doxo bill management service available on the Treasurer’s Office website.
Those who need to check on how much they still owe, can use the “property/tax records search” function on the Treasurer’s website www.co.walla-walla.wa.us or call the Treasurer’s office at 524-2750.
In addition, beginning this week people can register their email address on the Treasurer’s website so they can receive email notices of when property taxes are due as well as other notices or alerts.
