King County Assessor Lloyd Hara to host South King County Community Meeting in Burien

KING COUNTY - King County Assessor Lloyd Hara will host a South King Community Meeting on Wednesday, March 14th, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM to discuss property taxes, valuations and the services that the Department of Assessments provides to assist property owners in light of the economic downturn. The meeting, which is open to the public, will take place at the Burien Public Library, 400 Southwest 152nd Street, Burien, WA 98166.

This town hall will be an opportunity for property owners to learn more about their property taxes, valuations, exemptions, and the appeal process. King County Assessor Lloyd Hara will be joined by representatives from the King County Board of Equalization, Treasury, and Tax Advisor Office, to field questions from residents of South King County.

“Bank foreclosures and other distressed sales continue to be a drag on property values overall in King County,” said King County Assessor Lloyd Hara. “This is driving property values down through most of King County, and is resulting in property tax reductions for some.”
