3 property tax relief options offered by San Juan County Treasurer

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 30, there are three options now available to assist you:

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 30.) 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.

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.

Six Month Plan / No Penalty - No penalty is charged if you make six monthly payments to be paid in full by September 30, 2020 (for the first half of the annual payment due April 30.) 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.

Penalty and Interest Accrual

Penalty: A 3% penalty accrues on June 1 and an 8% penalty accrues on December 1 for the unpaid annual balance

Interest: 1% interest accrues on the outstanding annual balance on the first day of each month beginning May 1.
