EVERETT – New assessment notices will be mailed to all property owners on June 24th. The new assessed values should reflect the market value of each property as of Jan. 1st 2016 and will be used to determine each property owner’s share of property taxes due in 2017.

The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document that was included with this year’s assessment notices is available at:  http://www.snohomishcountywa.gov/DocumentCenter/View/17120

County Assessor Linda Hjelle recommends that property owners having questions or concerns about their new assessed values call her office to talk to an appraiser before filing an appeal with the Board of Equalization, as many concerns or issues can be resolved without filing an appeal.

·         Residential Appraisal may be contacted at: 425-388-6555
·         Commercial Appraisal may be contacted at: 425-388-3390

 

Petitions or appeals to the Board of Equalization must be filed with the Board within 60 days of when the notice was mailed or July 1st, whichever is later. The appeal process does not require that you hire an attorney, but you will need to present evidence that the Assessor’s value is incorrect.  Appeal forms and instructions are available on the Board of Equalization’s website at:  http://www.snohomishcountywa.gov/134/Board-of-Equalization or by contacting the Clerk of the Board at 425-388-3407.

The change in assessed value for individual properties can vary greatly depending on the characteristics of the property such as: location, property type, zoning, age and condition.

Appraisers will spend the next few months adding new construction to the assessment rolls, so some property owners will receive a new notice of assessed value in the fall for new construction added this year. The assessment date for new construction is as of July 31st each year for property taxes to be collected the following year.

Information on property tax exemptions and special programs are also available on the Assessor’s website or by calling 425-388-3433.
