The Assessor-Treasurer’s service counter is now open to receive property tax payments and issue receipts. The opening at the Pierce County Annex, 2401 S. 35th Street in Tacoma is intended to assist taxpayers in meeting the Monday, November 1 due date for second-half 2021 property taxes. Hours for the service counter are 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. There is also a dropbox outside the front entrance to the Annex, available 24 hours for property tax payments. Other services cannot yet be offered in person at the Annex, but will continue to be conducted remotely through this website, by email, by phone or by mail.
Much of our staff continues to work from home and in the office only as necessary, to perform our duties including property valuation, exemptions, cartography and foreclosure avoidance. We encourage you to contact us by phone, live computer chat on this website, or by e-mail or U.S. Mail for assistance with these matters. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. When we are able to resume normal services, an announcement will be posted here.
