County tax statement error
March 1, 2023
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 in county tax statements. The line items for school districts were combined in 2023 giving the appearance of a larger increase than the actual increase.
The 2023 current year tax amount due is correct. First half tax payments are due on April 30. Make payments online or by check and dropped in the county courthouse drop box or mailed using the tax coupon that came with the tax statement.
This also affects the appearance of total taxes paid for 2022. Refer to your 2022 tax statement for this amount and the amount actually paid in local school taxes.
Call the County Treasurer’s Office to request a copy of your 2022 tax statement: 360-416-1750.
