Washington State Law requires that a Real Estate Excise Tax Affidavit be completed and signed prior to a deed being recorded to transfer ownership of real property. For your convenience, some helpful hints (PDF) are available to assist you in filling out the affidavit.

These electronic forms are accepted in Snohomish County but may not be accepted in other Washington counties. If you wish to record a property transfer in another county, please check with that county prior to completing these electronic forms.
Many forms are in portable document format (PDF), which requires Adobe Acrobat Reader®.
If you prefer not to download a form, you may get information on where to get or mail a form by contacting the Treasurer.
