Clallam County’s 2022 assessed valuations for 2023 taxes have seen a sizeable increase for their Jan. 1 assessment, Clallam County Assessor Pam Rushton said in a press release last week — averaging a 25-percent bump across the county.
Values of individual properties will have a larger range in value changes depending on how close the value was to market in previous years, she said.
Taxes typically will not increase based on an average assessed value increase but may depending on recently voted measures, taxing districts’ budgets, and amount of value change compared to the average changes, Rushton noted.
Property owners have a variety on online resources through the assessor’s office (clallam.net) and other online sites, Rushton said.
