If you are a homeowner with limited income, Washington has a program that may help you pay your property taxes, which began in 2008.
Under this program, the Department of Revenue will pay 50% of your property taxes on your behalf. The program is not an exemption or grant. Once you no longer own or use the property as your personal residence, you must repay the deferred taxes. The deferred taxes, plus interest, will become a lien on the property in favor of the state until the total amount is repaid.
