Tax Payment Options

PLEASE REMEMBER THE DUE DATE REQUIREMENTS FOR TAXES and allow adequate time for your payment to process timely through your financial institution. If your payment is received by the County after the due date is will be considered delinquent and will be returned for interest and penalty, per state law.


Always include your property account number with your payment- 14 digit (real property) or 7 digit (personal property)


A $35.00 processing fee will be assessed on ALL BANK RETURNED ITEMS


Your tax payment check could be converted to an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). When you provide a check as payment, you authorize us either to use the information from your check to make a one-time electronic funds transfer from your account, or to process the payment as a check transaction. When we use information from your check to make an EFT, funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the same day we receive your payment and you will not receive your check back from your financial institution. Additional electronic funds transfer information is available online.


Storing of Information

The only personal information the county keeps is the payer’s name and parcel being paid. The eCheck and debit or credit card information that is entered when making a payment is passed directly to the bank when the authorization takes place and is not stored by the county.


Fees

Washington statute, RCW 36.29.190, states that the costs of using credit or debit cards, or other electronic transactions must be borne by the payer. The fee is paid to a third party, not the county, to process the credit card payment. The payment processor charges a convenience fee that is a percentage of the tax. None of this fee is received by Snohomish County.

  • Credit Card: Pay using our merchant services provider online or by phone at 833-440-3332.
