Assessor Welcome Message

Welcome back!  It looks like we all made it another year with the market volatility impacting the assessed values and legislative changes to the levies.  This last year was nothing short of complicated and confusing.  Instead of reiterating what is always in the “letter to the taxpayers”, I’m going to focus on disseminating information this year. 

I submitted a guest column to the Wenatchee World regarding property taxes and what is happening locally.  Unfortunately, certain parts of my guest column were edited out, leaving the end of the column a bit confusing.  Instead of a letter to the taxpayers this year, I’m submitting the full, unedited, guest column for your reading pleasure – and hopefully it will shed some light on how the assessment and levy processes work.  Information is knowledge.  I hope to see you all at one of our Community Meetings this spring!

I want to personally thank you for your patience and understanding.  It is a pleasure to be able to serve the taxpayers of Chelan County.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at (509) 667-6367 or deanna.walter@co.chelan.wa.us.

Sincerely,

Deanna Walter, Chelan County Assessor

What We Do

The Assessor’s office is responsible for determining the value of all taxable real and personal property in the county on a fair and equitable basis, along with maintaining accurate and accessible property information, providing timely and accurate assessments for tax purposes, and a detailed parcel map showing all parcels within the County. Chelan County is now annually updating all properties according to market sales, and continues to do physical inspections of every property on a 4-year cycle. Washington State law requires property to be assessed at 100% of fair market value.

Your property taxes fund state and county services, including roads, transit, schools, libraries, parks, hospitals, fire and rescue, law enforcement, environmental and social services.  Information such as parcel numbers, ownership, tax code areas, and assessed valuations for all property within the county can be obtained on-line through the property search of the Assessor's web site, or by calling the assessor's office during business hours.
