Submitted by Thurston County Treasurer
The 2017 deadline for Thurston County residents to pay their first half property taxes is April 30. April 30, is a Sunday this year so Washington State law allows the payment to be made the next business day, which is Monday, May 1, without incurring any late charges.
Residents can pay their property taxes through the Thurston County Treasurer’s website. There is no additional charge for the electronic check payment option on-line, but there is a 2.35% fee for a major credit card payment, and a flat $3.95 fee for a VISA debit card payment. Residents can also make payments in person at the Treasurer’s Office or the courthouse parking lot drop box – located at 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Building One, Olympia, 98502. The same fees apply for payments made in person.
The Thurston County Treasurer’s Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Payments made by mail must be postmarked by the due date. As required by law penalties and interest will be charged for those who do not have their payments in on time.
