The deadline is Oct. 31 for Thurston County residents to pay their 2015 second-half property taxes. However, because that’s a Saturday, the law allows payment to be made on the next business day, which is Monday, Nov. 2, without late charges.
Property taxes can be paid through the Thurston County Treasurer’s website at co.thurston.wa.us/treasurer. There is no additional charge for the electronic check payment option online, but there is a 2.35 percent fee for using a credit card and a flat $3.95 fee for a VISA debit card payment.
Payments also can be made at the Treasurer’s Office between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or in the courthouse parking lot drop box at 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Building One, Olympia. The same fees apply for payments made in person.
Payments made by mail must be postmarked by the due date. Penalties and interest will be charged on late payments.
