Thurston County Treasurer's Office Changes Delinquent Taxes Procedures.


OLYMPIA- The Thurston County Treasurer, Shawn Myers, has revised a practice regarding the tax foreclosure process. Since 2003, the Treasurer's Office practice has been to collect all delinquent taxes to redeem a property from the foreclosure process. Effective for the 2010 tax foreclosure, taxpayers will only be required to pay 2007 and prior year's taxes to redeem from the foreclosure proceedings. This is a temporary option in order to help homeowners who may be struggling with these difficult economic times. The Treasurer has the authority per RCW 84.64.050 to make this change based on resolution #10474, dated November 1, 1993.
