King County property owners/taxpayers are reminded that real estate and personal property taxes for the first half of 2008 must be paid or postmarked by today (Wednesday) at the latest.

There are three ways to pay taxes: online, in-person and by mail.

• Pay online: Payments can be made conveniently from home using King County’s eTax Web site

Users of the on-line option will need a valid credit card number or checking account to complete and authorize the transaction. Eligible credit cards include VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover Card. There are processing fees for using the online service. The fee for on-line checking is $0.95 and the fee imposed by credit card companies is 2.5 percent. King County does not receive any part of the additional fees.

The county’s eTax online system provides immediate payment confirmation for current year. Delinquent accounts are not payable through the online payment system. Payments submitted after today will incur delinquency charges.

• Pay in-person: Tax payments can be made in person at the Treasury Operations office in the King County Administration Building, 500 Fourth Ave., Room 600 in Seattle. Payments are accepted during normal operating hours, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Tax payments made by check for the exact amount due may be paid at one of King County’s seven Community Service Centers. For addresses, phone numbers and operating hours of the community services centers, please visit,

• Pay by mail: Tax payments returned by mail must be postmarked by April 30, 2008 to avoid interest charges. The property tax account number must be placed on the enclosed check or money order and payments should accompany a tax statement.

Taxpayers who have not received statements may contact King County Treasury Operations at, or by calling the automated system at 206-296-0923 or a customer service representative at 206-296-3850.
