2023 Tax Statement Notice
Due to a software glitch, the comparison for residents’ tax distribution from 2022 to 2023 does not include a second line item for local school districts. The line items for school districts were combined in 2023 giving the appearance of a larger increase than the actual increase.
This also affects the appearance of total taxes paid for 2022. Please refer to your 2022 tax statement for this amount and the amount you actually paid in local school taxes. If you would like a copy of your 2022 tax statement, please call (360) 416-1750 and request a copy of your 2022 statement.
The 2023 Current Year Tax amount due is correct. First half tax payments are due on April 30. Payments can be made online or by check and either dropped in our drop box at the courthouse or mailed using the corresponding tax coupon that came with your statement.
The Skagit County Treasurer’s Office is a regional service for about 80 local government districts. We operate under State Law to provide cash custody, investment, revenue collection, and debt payment services to those districts.

General Taxpayer Information
Late payments are subject to interest and penalties (RCW 84.56.020). Interest is assessed on the full year tax amount due, beginning May 1. Please contact our office at 360-416-1750 for the correct amount due if you are paying late.
Property taxes are due when billed, however, there are two final dates that tax payments must be received. If you choose to split your property taxes into two installments, the first installment must be received by April 30 and the second installment must be received by October 31. If the property tax is less than $50.00, the full year must be paid by April 30. (RCW 84.56.020)
The Skagit County Assessor sets values on property, establishes levies, and approves tax exemptions. Please contact the Assessor's Office for more information 360-416-1780.
Property owners have an opportunity to sign up for e-Statements.

Additionally, the Treasurer’s Office offers a convenient auto-pay program that automatically withdraws their tax payment on the due date. This is available to taxpayers at no cost and takes the worry out of missing a payment.
