Why do I have to pay such high taxes on my property when it is mostly fish and wildlife habitat area?
The wetland (and some fish and wildlife habitat areas) on your property may allow you to qualify for a reduction in property taxes through Current Use Assessment , which could lower the assessed value of your property. You may also direct your questions about the program to Chad Williams at 253-798-3683.
