King County Assessor Lloyd Hara will host a ‘South King Community Meeting’ on Wednesday, March 14th, from 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. to “discuss property taxes, valuations and the services that the Department of Assessments provides to assist property owners in light of the economic downturn,” according to an announcement.
The meeting, which is free and open to the public, will take place at the Burien Public Library, 400 SW 152nd Street.
“Bank foreclosures and other distressed sales continue to be a drag on property values overall in King County,” said King County Assessor Lloyd Hara. “This is driving property values down through most of King County, and is resulting in property tax reductions for some.”
This town hall is planned to be an opportunity for property owners to learn more about property taxes, valuations, exemptions, and the appeal process.
Hara will be joined by representatives from the King County Board of Equalization, Treasury, and Tax Advisor Office, to field questions from residents of South King County.
