Will my taxes go up?
Yes. Your taxes have increased in 2018. For most taxpayers, Grays Harbor County's taxpayer increase for this additional property tax for 2018 is $0.99 per $1,000 of assessed value.
If your home is worth $100,000, your taxes due to this new state levy will be an additional $99 in tax for the year. 100,000 / 1000= 100 $100 x $0.99 = $99
This increase in property tax for 2018 is not due to a change in property value nor is it an increase due to a new local levy. It is an added tax that was imposed by the state legislature that will go on top of any additional locally voted levies.

A MESSAGE FROM THE COUNTY ASSESSOR'S OFFICE

This web site has been designed to give you a better understanding of our Grays Harbor County Assessor’s Office and to make our public records available to you 24 hours a day seven days a week.
Grays Harbor County covers a 1,910 square mile area. Our office maintains information for over 61,602 real property parcels and 4,978 personal property and utility parcels.
You will find on this site a GIS program called Mapsifter that provides a detailed series of maps showing all properties within the county including aerial photos and the ability to add and remove different GIS layers. Each time property is sold or divided or a new plat is filed, the transaction will be processed and then reflected in our records.

In our Taxsifter program, we will have listed the owner’s name, the SITUS address, a tax parcel ID number, a tax code, a land use code, a five year history of the assessed value of land and improvements along with many other details on the property and building for each parcel. you can also use our Sale Search tool to find sales of property throughout Grays Harbor County.

As the Assessor I do not determine or raise your taxes. It is my responsibility to administer the tax laws of the state of Washington and to value all property subject to taxes as mandated by the Washington State Legislature. It is also my responsibility to calculate the levies imposed by the various taxing districts and additional special levies for which the people have voted.
The employees in the Assessor's Office work hard to accomplish the tasks of establishing equality in assessments as well as handling daily tasks and assisting the public. We also thank the taxpayers of Grays Harbor County that have been willing to cooperate and assist us with our work.
As a public servant, it is my sincere desire to assist the taxpayers of Grays Harbor County in an effective, responsible, and courteous manner and I welcome your inquiries regarding any matter concerning this office.
