First property taxes of year due Wednesday

Peninsula Daily News

This year’s first installment of property taxes are due Wednesday.

Payment for the first half of property taxes must be postmarked or placed in drop boxes by that day.

Mail dropped off in a U.S. postal mailbox after the pickup time could lead to a postmark of May 1. Mail postmarked after Wednesday will be considered delinquent and be subject to additional interest and penalties.

In Clallam County, payments can be mailed to the Clallam County Treasurer’s Office, Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Suite 3, Port Angeles, WA 98362; paid in person at the treasurer’s office or online at www.clallam.net/Treasurer; or placed in the drop box at the courthouse.
