Clallam County Treasurer Selinda Barkhuis reminds the taxpayers of Clallam County that first half property taxes for 2016 are due by Monday, May 2. Since April 30 is on Saturday, the deadline is extended until Monday.
Property tax payments must be postmarked or dropped off at the Clallam County Courthouse by Monday, May 2. Be aware that mail dropped in a U.S. postal mailbox after the post office pick-up time may result in a postmark of May 3 and taxes 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 courthouse on Fourth Street. If you require a receipt, enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope.
The Treasurer’s Office can accept 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 courthouse after May 2 are delinquent and subject to 1-percent delinquent interest. On June 1, an additional 1-percent interest and 3-percent penalty will be charged.
