Posted April 13, 2020 at 12:56 pm by

In response to the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic, San Juan Coun­ty Trea­sur­er, Rhon­da Ped­er­son, has encour­aged those who are able, to pay the full year in April to off­set those who will have dif­fi­cul­ty mak­ing the first half payment. 

If you have been finan­cial­ly impact­ed by this pan­dem­ic and find your­self in need of a pay­ment plan to pay the first half of the annu­al prop­er­ty tax due April 30th, there are three options now avail­able to assist you:

  1. Pay What You Can When You Can — Penal­ty and inter­est will con­tin­ue to accrue accord­ing to RCW 84.56.020 (see below for the sched­ule) but you can pay what you can when you can (for the first half of the annu­al pay­ment due April 30th.)  No appli­ca­tion is required.  You just need to call our office at 360–378-2171 so we can set your account to allow for par­tial payments.
  2. Two Month Plan / No Inter­est — No inter­est is charged if you pay half in April and half in May (for the first half of the annu­al pay­ment due April 30th.)  A dig­i­tal­ly signed appli­ca­tion is required.  Click here to apply for this plan: COVID19, 2 Month Pay­ment Plan or vis­it our web page (https://www.sanjuanco.com/314/Treasurer) for the link to the application.
  3. Six Month Plan / No Penal­ty — No penal­ty is charged if you make six month­ly pay­ments to be paid in full by Sep­tem­ber 30th, 2020 (for the first half of the annu­al pay­ment due April 30th.)  A dig­i­tal­ly signed appli­ca­tion is required.  Click here to apply for this plan:  COVID19, 6 Month Pay­ment Plan or vis­it our web page (https://www.sanjuanco.com/314/Treasurer) for the link to the application.

You may drop off your pay­ment in the new secure drop box just out­side the main doors of the cour­t­house near the Sheriff’s Depart­ment or you may send your pay­ment by USPS.  You may also call 877–816-9299 to make your pay­ments with a cred­it card or an elec­tron­ic check (have your geo/tax par­cel num­ber avail­able before you call.)  You can­not make par­tial pay­ments on our web-page as the soft­ware does not allow for par­tial pay­ments.  Anoth­er option is to uti­lize bill pay through your finan­cial institute.
