Property taxes mixed in King County in 2013, Down for some, up for others
Aggregate tax increase of 3.35% Property value declines 1.48%
Property taxes are mixed in King County for 2013, with property values and property taxes down for many. However, some property owners will see their property
values decline while their property taxes increase, and other property owners will see both their property values increase and property taxes increase.
"We are beginning to see a recovery in the housing market in King County," said King County Assessor Lloyd Hara. "Though property values continue to decline in most areas,
there are also a number of areas where property values are increasing, including in the City of Seattle and the Eastside."
