Payments on the North Olympic Peninsula can be submitted by mail, placed into drop-boxes, paid online or dropped off in person at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St. in Port Angeles, or at the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St., Port Townsend.
The offices are open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
In Jefferson County, drop-boxes are in the rear parking lot of the courthouse, at the Bank of America branches in Port Townsend and Port Hadlock, Columbia Bank in Port Ludlow and U.S. Bank in Quilcene.
In Clallam County, a drop-box is at the courthouse in the drive-through in front of the Fourth Street entrance.
Forks and Sequim no longer have drop-off locations because of budget cuts, said county Treasurer Selinda Barkhuis.
The second half of the year’s property tax bill is due by Oct. 31.
