Exemption Information

Property owned by cemeteries and non-profit organizations may apply to the Washington State Department of Revenue for property tax exemption. The initial application for exemption must be made within 60 days of purchase or conversion of the property to an exempt use. The application must be filed annually with the Department of Revenue between January 1 and March 31. The Assessor-Treasurer's Office identifies such properties with an exempt property code, maintains the ownership, property descriptions and tax status.
