Pierce County property taxes due Nov. 2

The second installment of this year’s property taxes are due Monday, Nov. 2. Because Oct. 31 falls on a Saturday, the county can accept payments that are dropped off or postmarked by Nov. 2.

No in-person transactions can be made at this time as the assessor-treasurer’s office at the Pierce County Annex remains closed to the public until COVID-19 cases decrease enough for the county to move to Phase 3 of the state’s reopening plan.

People who miss the Nov. 2 due date will be assessed a 1 percent monthly interest.

The Nov. 2 payment deadline cannot be extended further because many cities, school districts, fire districts and other taxing districts rely on the funds for operating costs and to make debt service payments due in November, according to the county.

Payments may be made:

  • By mail to Pierce County Finance, P.O. Box 11621, Tacoma WA 98411. Make checks payable to Pierce County and please include payment stub or parcel number.
  • Online using e-check, debit card or credit card at www.piercecountywa.gov/atr, or by calling the Assessor-Treasurer’s automated telephone system at 253-798-3333. Please have the parcel number ready. A handling fee is added by an outside vendor: 50 cents for e-check, $3.50 for debit and 2.35 percent for credit card.
  • Secure drop box at Pierce County Annex, 2401 S. 35th St. in Tacoma. Do not pay in cash.
