Our online payment system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (system may be temporarily unavailable between 12:00 AM and 3:00 AM due to system updates). At the end of your transaction, you will be provided immediate payment confirmation and an option to print a receipt for your records.
A convenience fee is charged with each transaction made. As allowed by RCW 36.29.190, the County passes along the cost of electronic payments to the payer. The fees were negotiated to lower levels by the County based on the volumes transacted; the convenience fees are assessed and collected by the 3rd party agency handling the payments. Island County DOES NOT receive any of the transaction fees charged.
Have your property account number ready. Your account 'Property ID' number is located on your tax statement both at the top and on each payment coupon. Have your credit card ready or a copy of a check if you are using E-Check. Partial payments will not be processed and will result in your payment being returned.
If your payment is refused by the bank a $20 returned item fee will be added to your property tax account. From that point forward only a cashier's check, money order, or cash in person will be accepted for the balance due.
For assistance with online payments, please review our Online Tax Payment guide.
