04/16/2019: "Property Taxes Due April 30 Plan Ahead Mail Early"

San Juan County Treasurer, Rhonda Pederson would like to remind county property owners that the first installment of property taxes and personal property taxes are due April 30.
If you mail, MAIL EARLY - all San Juan County mail goes to Seattle for processing.

When you mail your tax payment from your home or drop it off at the post office mailbox, it is routed to Seattle, where it is postmarked and processed the next day. It is then routed to Friday Harbor where it is delivered to our mail box, possibly the following day.

State statues dictate that your postmark date determines your payment date and that 1% interest per month begins accruing on the first day of the following month (May 1). This means that if you put your payment in your mailbox on April 30, it will NOT be postmarked on April 30, but rather May 1 and interest will be accrued.

On June 1, if still unpaid, an additional 3% penalty on the entire 2019 amount will accrue - again by State statute. These charges cannot be waived.

Please save yourself time, money and frustration by mailing a few days early to avoid any late charges.

Credit card payments or electronic checks may be made on line at or by phone, 877-816-9299. Instructions for both are on the back of the tax statement, and a 2.5% fee is charged by the service provider for credit card payments, $3.95 for a debit card or $2.00 for an electronic check.

For tax payers who signed up for AutoPay, your payment will be made automatically for the amount shown on your first half tax payment coupon on April 25. Please consider signing up for the AutoPay program.

Please call the Treasurer's office at 360-378-2171 with any questions.
