First half property taxes for Clallam County residents are due soon, county treasurer Teresa Marchi is reminding residents.
Payments must be postmarked or dropped off at the Clallam County Courthouse by Tuesday, April 30; mail dropped in a U.S. postal mailbox after the post office pick-up time may result in a postmark of May 1, Marchi notes, and will be considered delinquent.
The only drop-off location that remains is the gray drop box specifically designated for property tax payments and other courthouse business, located within the circular drive at the county courthouse on Fourth Street. Taxpayers requiring a receipt are asked to enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope to have a receipt mailed back.
The Treasurer’s Office accepts most credit and debit cards, either at the Treasurer’s Office counter or online at www.clallam.net/Treasurer (a convenience fee will be charged by the credit and/or debit card provider).
Payments postmarked or dropped off at the county courthouse after April 30 are subject to 1 percent interest on the full year amount. On June 1, an additional 1 percent interest and 3 percent penalty will be charged on the full year tax amount.
