King County Appraisers Begin On-Site Property Inspections for 2019 Values

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
King County appraisers have begun the annual process of visiting neighborhoods to inspect properties in-person to to set the property taxation values. Woodinville residential areas will be inspected through the early spring of 2019.
The Assessor is required by law to inspect each property in-person at least once every six years. In practice, that means King County property appraisers visit in-person about 1/6 of the properties in the county each year to ensure that homes are valued accurately and fairly. This translates to approximately 100,000 property inspections each year.
An inspection is generally an exterior observation for comparison with the property characteristics on file. To accomplish the inspections, Assessors may need to enter side or back yards. If additional information is needed, Assessor’s staff will first knock on the residence door to speak with a taxpayer if possible. All appraisers carry county ID.
Citizens with questions should contact our Public Information Team at (206) 296-7300.
