My office sometimes receives questions from constituents about taxes or K-12 education funding. Here you will find useful documents on those topics, including a chart on per pupil state and local funding for school districts in the 26th Legislative District, information on property taxes in the 26th Legislative District and statewide, and a guide to K-12 education funding. I hope you find this information helpful.
Property tax deferral program for seniors and disabled persons
If you are at least 60 years old or are retired from regular employment because of a disability, you are eligible to apply for a property tax deferral program. For questions about the deferral program, contact your county assessor’s office (Kitsap County Assessor’s Office, 360-337-7160 or firstname.lastname@example.org; Pierce County Assessor’s Office, 253-798-6111 or email@example.com). You can also find more information about property tax exemptions and deferrals by visiting the state Department of Revenue’s webpage on exemptions and deferrals here.
