Property Tax Relief for Seniors

Over the years, many seniors have contacted me about their increasing property taxes. Despite our regionís economic growth, many seniors on fixed-incomes are struggling as property taxes and the cost of living increase, but monthly incomes stay the same. Starting in 2020, seniors with 2019 annual incomes below $58,423 may be eligible for property tax relief.

To learn more and apply, you can go to www.kingcounty.gov/depts/assessor/TaxRelief or call 206-296-3920. If you have any questions, donít hesitate to contact me at 206-477-1007 or pete.vonreichbauer@kingcounty.gov.
