Appraisers conducting physical inspection of properties in Algona/Pacific

King County appraisers have begun the annual process of visiting neighborhoods to inspect properties in-person to set the values for property taxes payable in 2021.

Appraisers are now conducting inspections in Algona and Pacific.

The assessor is required by law to inspect each property in-person at least once every six years, and county appraisers have the right under state law to examine properties to complete this inspection. An inspection is generally an exterior observation for comparison with the property characteristics on file.

When approaching a property, an appraiser is instructed to go directly to the front door to alert the homeowner, and ask for permission to enter the side or backyard if necessary. All appraisers carry county ID, and will be wearing clothing identifying them as a King County employee.

Citizens with questions should contact Randy Raven, senior appraiser at 206-477-8405.
