Pay by Mail:

Return your tax payment coupon(s), and check made payable to Whatcom County Treasurer, in the envelope provided, to PO Box 34873, Seattle WA 98124-1873.  We cannot accept post-dated checks.  If you want a receipt, you must enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope.  Please note: be sure that the official postmark reflects the due date, or before.  Any payment postmarked after the due date will be considered delinquent, and returned to you for interest and possible penalty.

If you do not have your tax payment coupon, please write the property ID number(s) on your check, or print a screen image from the search online function, and include that with your check. But, please do not send just a check without an identifying property ID number. Thank you.
