Property tax payments due April 30

The deadline is April 30 for Thurston County residents to pay their 2015 first half property taxes.

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 2.5 percent fee for a major credit card payment and a flat $3.95 fee for a VISA debit card payment.

Payments also can be made in person at the Treasurer’s Office or the courthouse parking lot drop box at 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Building One, Olympia. The same fees apply for payments made in person.

Treasurer’s office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Payments made by mail must be postmarked by the due date. Penalties and interest will be charged for those who do not pay on time.
