New construction inspections in progress
Appraisers from the Assessor’s Office are performing inspections throughout the county on properties issued building permits within the last year. They are also inspecting property with permits issued earlier if construction was incomplete during the 2018 inspections. Standard procedure is to take pictures of the structure, verify exterior measurements and make note of finish materials and other features.
Property owners or occupants present at the time of inspection may be asked about interior features. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated and assists in acquiring accurate details of the structure for assessor records. Appraisers from the Assessor’s office can be identified by wearing distinctive vests with Skagit County on the back. They also drive white county vehicles with the county emblem on the doors. Please call the Assessor’s office at 360 416-1780 with questions or concerns.

This process involves establishing real and personal property values for distributing taxes for each tax district, as well as reviewing each tax district’s budget request to assure all legal requirements and limitations are met. The assessor also administers and monitors compliance for recipients of tax benefit programs, such as the Senior Citizen and Disabled Exemption program and the various Current Use programs for properties used for agriculture, timber and open space.
