Thurston Treasurer Announces New Property Tax Payment Method.

OLYMPIA - Thurston County Treasurer Shawn Myers announced that taxpayers now have the option to pay property taxes, on-line or in person, using American Express, Discover, MasterCard or VISA credit or debit cards. There is a fee to use the service; however property owners also can still pay on-line without a fee by electronic check. The County Treasurer has contracted with Point & Pay, a third party vendor, to operate as an extension of their customer support and payment processing services.

"There has been great demand from taxpayers to have the ability to pay their property taxes using a credit card. It will be helpful for them to have an additional payment option", said Myers. The new service gives taxpayers a flexible, secure method of making payments conveniently and on time.

Property taxes can be paid through the Thurston County Treasurer's web site by visiting http://www.co.thurston.wa.us/treasurer/ , and then clicking on the "Pay Property Taxes" link to begin the payment process.

Reminder: Second half property taxes are due October 31st.
