To respond to the economic impacts stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, Grays Harbor County Treasurer Ken Albert encourages property owners who are financially able to pay first half or full-year property taxes early, to fund essential services needed now and in the months to come. Your property taxes fund essential services in state and local governments, including cities, counties, public health, schools, fire districts, ports, hospital, and other districts.

Treasurer Ken Albert: “We recognize that many families and businesses are struggling to make ends meet during the economic crisis from the COVID-19 pandemic. Some are asking what kind of assistance programs are available for taxpayers who need help paying the real and personal property taxes due on April 30.

Grays Harbor County will extend the property tax deadline for residential and commercial taxpayers to June 1, 2020.  Grays Harbor County will waive the interest and penalty on unpaid property taxes for 31 days and will only assess interest and penalties on any unpaid first half 2020 real and personal property taxes after June 1st 2020 verified by postmark.”

The waiver shall not apply to prior year delinquent taxes or intermediaries, including mortgage loan servicing companies.  If taxpayers anticipate being unable to pay their payment by June 1st, please contact our office after May 15th at [email protected]   

The County Treasurer serves as the bank of Grays Harbor County and the junior taxing districts and is considered an essential service. The office is closed to the public until further notice, although taxpayers may continue to do business through the website, email, mail or phone calls. We are working remotely.
