What are the Treasurer’s office hours?

We are open Monday through Friday from 8:00am – 4:30pm. Please see the posted holiday schedule for days that we are closed.


Where is the Treasurer’s office located?

We are located on the second floor of the Pend Oreille County Courthouse at 625 W. 4th St. in Newport, Washington. Contact our office if you need further directions.


When are property bills sent to taxpayers?

Tax bill are mailed annually, generally within the month of February. However, tax bills may be sent later than February if there is a delay in receiving the tax rolls from the County Assessor.


When are taxes due?

First half taxes or full payment are due April 30. Second half taxes are due October 31. If the due date falls on a weekend, the payments will be accepted the next business day.  Please note, state law considers the full amount payable in April, but allows for two installments unless the tax is under $50. If the first installment is not made, interest and penalty will accumulate on the entire amount of tax.


Is a postmark acceptable or do I have to pay in person on the due date?

You may make your payment in person or mail your payment. An official Post Office postmark determines the payment for all mailed payments. If you are sending your payment by air express or similar service, the Treasurer’s Office will verify a “sent date” with the carrier in the event that it is necessary.


Can I pay my taxes with a credit card?

Yes. Property taxes may be paid online or by telephone with a credit card or debit card through Official Payments Corporation. You will need your geo/parcel number or your property identification number (PID), tax payment amount, the jurisdiction code (5677) and your credit card. Official Payments accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

In addition, we are now able to accept payments by E-checks.

If paying by telephone, call 1-800-272-9829. If paying online, go to www.officialpayments.com.

Official Payments Corporation charges a nominal fee for this service. The E-check fee is lower than fees for credit and debit cards.


My taxes are delinquent. Can I pay the delinquent taxes and not pay the current year?

Yes, you may pay any delinquent year in full, with interest and penalty, without paying the current year.


If I don’t pay my first half taxes by April 30, do I have to pay my taxes in full?

No. You may pay your first half taxes, with interest and penalty calculated on the full year’s taxes, through October 31.


I don’t have enough money to even pay half of my taxes. Can I make a partial payment?

No. Washington state law (RCW 84.56.020) does not allow the Treasurer to accept partial payments.


Why haven’t I received my tax statement yet?

The Treasurer’s office may have an incorrect mailing address or we may be holding the statement for an adjustment from the Assessor’s office that needs to be completed prior to mailing (i.e. senior or disability exemptions).

Contact the Treasurer’s office  to verify your information if you have not received your statement by mid-March.


I lost my tax statement. Can I get a new one?

Contact the Treasurer’s office and a duplicate statement can be mailed to you.


How do I change my address?

Address changes must be in writing and may be done by mail, fax, email or in person. Please include the property owners contact information and also the tax parcel numbers with the request.


My mortgage company no longer pays my taxes.

Contact the Treasurer’s office with the correct address. We are now mailing tax statements to the property owner, so the owner is aware of the status of their taxes. We export the entire tax billing to mortage companies and tax service companies. However, we do appreciate notification that a mortage company no longer pays your taxes. It is the responsibility of the property owner to provide any change of taxpayer information to the Treasurer’s office. Do not assume that your mortgage company will provide this information to the Treasurer’s office on your behalf.


My mortgage company receives my tax statement. Can I get a copy  of the statement?

We are now mailing tax statements to the property owner of record, so the owner is aware of the status of their taxes. We export the entire tax billing to mortage companies and tax service companies. If you have not received a statement by mid-March, contact the Treasurer’s office and a duplicate statement can be mailed to you.


Is there a senior citizen or disability exemption available?

Yes. This program is administered by the Pend Oreille County Assessor’s office. All question or requests for information should be directed to the Assessor’s office at (509) 447-4312.


Paying Taxes Under Protest

Paying Taxes Under Protest Taxpayers are required to take the following actions at the time you pay the property tax in order to petition your case with the Superior Court: (1) present a separate written protest to the County Treasurer at the time of payment of the tax; and (2) list in writing all the reasons why you feel the tax is unlawful or unfair.  You may also file a petition contesting your valuation with the County Board of Equalization.  For additional information regarding appealing your property valuation to the Board of Equalization.
