PAY YOUR TAXES NOW WITH AUTO-PAY!

     

The Island County Treasurer Office is now accepting applications for the AutoPay program. This service is provided at no cost* to you!​​

*Standard fees may apply, depending on your financial institution's policies.​

To Apply:

Start by completing the Auto-Pay Enrollment form through the link in the left column. Make sure the form is completely filled out in black or blue ink with legible printing.

PAYMENTS ARE WITHDRAWN ON THE 25TH OF APRIL AND OCTOBER​

Or, if you choose to pay the full year, this will all be done on April 25. If these dates fall on a holiday or weekend, the transaction will be done the next business day.

Completed forms must be in our office no later than March 15 for the first half tax payment, and September 15 for the second half. After these dates there is no guarantee that your account can be set up to make your payment by the due date.

Please Note:​​

  • Some bank accounts do not allow debit or ACH transactions for the  withdrawal of property tax payments.  It is your responsibility to verify with your financial institution that your account will allow the withdrawal transaction to be completed. 
  • The Auto-Pay method will remain in effect until the proper canceling documentation is filed, no less than 30 days before the next due date.​
  • All changes to an AutoPay enrollment must be done in writing.

 

You will still receive a physical property tax statement mailed to you once a year. This statement will be for your records. Starting in 2018, the statement will indicate that you are enlisted in the program.  To confirm your AutoPay status please contact our office.
