Welcome to the Okanogan County Assessor's Office web site.  This site has been prepared to help you understand the functions of the Assessor's Office.  The Information contained herein will hopefully assist you in obtaining information that you can use.

The primary role of the Assessor's office is to establish the fair market value for all property in Okanogan County for tax purposes.  The Assessor is required by law to value property at market value and to assure that all values are equitable, fair and uniform to all property owners in Okanogan County.

Taxable property is divided into two classes:  Real property includes land and all buildings, structures, improvement to the land, and mobile homes.   Personal property includes machinery and equipment, fixtures, furniture, and other items that are movable in nature.  Household goods and personal effects are exempt from property taxation.

The amount of taxes to be paid is determined not only by your assessed value but by the various taxing districts such as the State of Washington, County and City legislative authorities, fire districts, school districts and other 'junior' districts, as well as the voting public in its consideration of special levies.

The assessed value of your property multiplied by the levy rate for the area that your property lies within established the amount of property taxes that you pay each year.  This amount can change from year to year based upon changes in your assessed value and changes in the levy rate in your area.

It is my responsibility as your assessor, together with my staff, to insure that all property owners are treated fairly and impartially in accordance with our state laws.  It is our sincere desire to serve you in an effective, responsible and courteous manner.

The Okanogan County Assessor's Office welcomes your inquiries and concerns on how your property is assessed.  As your Assessor, I am committed to serve and assist you personally in any matters dealing with this office.  I am also available to speak to any interested groups.  Please contact the Okanogan County Assessor's Office for more information.
