Grant County property tax statements mailed

Apr. 2—EPHRATA — While some property owners will see new taxes and levies on their 2024 property tax statements, for most areas the total levy rate is lower than 2023. Grant County Treasurer Darryl Pheasant wrote in a press release that property tax statements were mailed late last week.

Tax statements include delinquent taxes and assessments, Pheasant wrote.

"We are also working on updated statements for those parcels that had changes that were processed after the original statements were created," he wrote.

Property taxes for the first half of the year, or the entire year, are due by April 30. Property owners who have not received a tax statement by April 5 are asked to contact the treasurer's office at 509-754-2010.

Tax statements have been delayed as county officials work with a new system in the Grant County Assessor's Office, Pheasant wrote. He asked for patience as county officials and staff familiarize themselves with it.

Online tax parcel information was made available to the public last week, he wrote, but currently, that site will not accept payments. County officials are hoping to provide an online option for tax payments sometime this week, he wrote.

Current tax information is available at www.grantcountywa.gov/384/treasurer. It's under the PACS tab on the "parcel information" page.

"To better serve taxpayers of Grant County, we are continuing to mail tax information notices to homeowners with mortgages and exemption notices to senior citizens who have received a full exemption of all their taxes," Pheasant wrote.

New taxes and assessments have been added in some districts, he wrote.

Property owners who are paying taxes by mail should make sure to include the coupon on the bottom left corner of the statement, he wrote.

"If you have more than one coupon, you may make one check for the total taxes and please remember to sign your check," Pheasant wrote. "Please check your envelope to verify all the parcels you want to pay are on your statements."

A payment drop box is located in the parking lot at the Grant County Courthouse, 35 C St. NW in Ephrata.
