The October 31 deadline for payment of second half 2023 property taxes is fast approaching. We want to remind you that to preserve the right to challenge the validity of your 2022 tax assessment in court, you must pay the tax under written protest stating the grounds for protest. This judicial remedy is available even if you missed the deadline last year for filing an administrative appeal of the tax assessment. Moreover, even if you failed to pay your first half tax under protest, you can still preserve your ability to obtain at least partial relief by protesting the second half taxes.
If you have any questions regarding whether you should pay under protest or the legal requirements for a protest, please contact Bill Severson at 206.223.7118 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
