Why do property taxes vary throughout the county?

The differences are due to three factors:

  • The amount of voter-approved special levies and bonds
  • The size of the budget for each taxing district
  • The varying combination of taxing districts in different areas of the county (schools, fire, water districts, etc.)

Grant County has 134 different tax rates and is the 3rd most complex taxing structure in the State of Washington.
