Thurston County’s property tax notices for 2017 will go out in the mail Friday, according to a news release from the Treasurer’s Office.
Payments can be made through the Thurston County Treasurer’s website at co.thurston.wa.us/treasurer/ or dropped off at the Treasurer’s Office or parking lot drop box at 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Olympia.
The deadline to pay first-half property taxes is April 30. However, because that day is a Sunday, payments will be accepted as on time through May 1, interim County Treasurer Steve Larson told The Olympian.
“By state law, you get to the following Monday to pay without penalty,” he said.
Penalties and interest will be charged for late payments. There is no additional charge to pay online by electronic check, but there is a 2.35 percent fee to use major credit cards, and a $3.95 flat fee for VISA debit cards.
