Assessor offers assistance for senior, disabled property tax exemptions

(SKAGIT COUNTY)- Representatives from the Skagit County Assessor’s Office are going mobile to help senior citizens and the disabled file their property tax exemption forms.

Starting March 29, Assessor’s Office representatives will visit local senior centers in Anacortes, Concrete and Sedro-Woolley to help residents complete their exemption paperwork.

“Every year, half the participants in our program need to provide income documentation to continue getting the tax exemption,” said Skagit County Assessor Dave Thomas. “We want to make this process easier by going out in person to help our residents renew their exemption applications or file new applications.”

Residents can meet with staff from the Assessor’s Office at the following locations:

Anacortes Senior Center

1701 22nd St., Anacortes

March 29 and April 12

10 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
