OLYMPIA - The deadline is October 31st for Thurston County residents to pay their 2015 second half property taxes. Since the 31st is a Saturday this year, the law allows the payment to be made the next business day, which is Monday, November 2nd without late charges.
Property taxes can be paid through the Thurston County Treasurer's web site at http://www.co.thurston.wa.us/treasurer/ . There is no additional charge for the electronic check payment option on-line, but there is a 2.35% fee for a major credit card payment and a flat $3.95 fee for a VISA debit card payment. Payments can also be made in person at the Treasurer's Office or the courthouse parking lot drop box - located at 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Building One, Olympia, WA 98502. The same fees apply for payments made in person. Our office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Payments made by mail must be postmarked by the due date. As required by law, penalties and interest will be charged for those who do not have their payments in on time.
