SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. -- Spokane County Assessor Tom Konis announced today that his office will begin mailing 215,934 real property valuation notices, starting June 1, 2023.
The assessed value of the property identified in the notice will be the figure on which 2024 property taxes will be calculated. Assessed values of properties are provided to the 55 taxing districts to assist them in finalizing their levy requests that are turned in by the end of November.
The Assessor finalizes property values in December and certifies the levy rates and amounts to the Treasurer’s Office in January.

Property assessments reflect the values as of Jan. 1, 2023. Values are determined by analyzing real estate sales in 855 statistical neighborhoods throughout Spokane County.
Assessor Konis stated, “The real estate market for residential properties in our region has slowed from the last couple of years. Commercial properties have seen a mixture of changes with some sectors still struggling coming out of the pandemic while others are thriving. This is especially true for multifamily housing and industrial properties.”
Notices will be in a letter format, different than typically sent out by the Assessor's Office in the past. Most of the information on the notice is required by law. With recent changes in the laws the old post cards were difficult to read. The Assessor hopes that the new format is easier for the taxpayers to read and understand.
For questions about assessments, use the email address printed at the middle of the Assessor’s notice below the new valuation information. The phone number of the appraiser assigned to the property is also listed on the notice.
