Sample Property Tax Report for a Pierce County, WA property


In Washington State, all real and personal property is subject to taxation unless specifically exempted by law. Property tax is levied and collected by the local governments and used to fund local entities, such as counties, municipalities and school districts. Property tax was the first tax levied in the state of Washington.

Market Value

Market value is defined as the sale price of real estate as agreed upon between willing buyers and willing sellers, with neither being under any duress to either buy or sell.

Land value $62,300
Improvement value + $148,600
Market value = $210,900
Assessed Value

Assessed value is the basis for calculating property tax. Assessed value is affected by the local real estate market, meaning that the Assessor-Treasurer assesses values based on real estate transactions. State Law requires all property to be assessed at 100% of its market value.

Assessed value = $210,900
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Pierce County provides taxpayers tax deferrals programs which may lower the property's tax bill. These are deducted from the assessed value to give the property's taxable value.

We have no information about whether any exemptions currently apply to this property. Therefore, the taxable value will be equal to the assessed value.

Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying property's taxable value by the corresponding millage rates and is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay. The rates are expressed as millages (i.e the actual rates multiplied by 1000).
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs or to non ad-valorem taxes.
