As part of our annual
review, inspection of revaluation Area 1 (1/6th of the county) is on
our calendar this year. The Island County Assessor's office will be conducting
in person appraiser visits to each parcel in the city of Oak Harbor and South
of Oak Harbor through March of 2018.
Visits are required by state law RCW 84.40.04 Appraisers are identifiable by their badge, the emblem on the county car and/or outerwear with "ASSESSOR" visible on the jacket or vest. Our visit will allow us to update our records with you or by visual observations if you are not home. We visit 9,000 parcels annually and are unable to schedule visits.
Should you have concerns please feel free to contact the Assessor's Office at 360-679-7303.
Island County Assessor
As your Assessor, one of my functions is to have this office be transparent and accessible to you. This web section will provide you with information and assistance on questions you may have regarding the Assessor’s office. If you have any other questions or concerns that are not addressed here, please contact me.
It is our goal to appraise all property fairly and equitably, to maintain accurate and accessible property records and give prompt and courteous customer service.
State law requires that the Assessor value property at 100% of true and fair market value. The market value is determined by the property owners who are buying and selling real estate in the market place. Finding the market value of your property means discovering the price most people would pay for your property.
The Island County Assessor’s office is required to physically inspect, appraise and revalue all real property once every 6 years with an annual review and update based on sales analysis.
This appraisal cycle is established by the state constitution & state laws, enforced by the State Department of Revenue
