News Release

Date: June 13, 2013

The Department of Assessments and the independent Board of Equalization are bringing online a new set of tools that will make it dramatically easier for taxpayers to see how their property compares to others we’ve used to set assessed values. We’re taking a cumbersome paper process and going digital with an easy-to-follow online system. King County eAppeals (www.kingcounty.gov/eappeals) is similar to filing your federal income taxes electronically.

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." (read more)
