Yes. This program is administered by the Whatcom County Assessor’s Office. All questions or requests for information should be directed to their office at (360) 778-5050 or go to their Property Tax Exemptions Page.
Taxes are calculated every January when the levy rates are set and the tax roll is certified by the Whatcom County Assessor’s Office and then turned over to the Treasurer’s Office. The levy rate varies for each taxing district depending upon the budget for each district, and any voter-approved special levies and bonds. This levy rate is multiplied per thousand dollars of assessed value.
Example: If assessed value is $100,000 and the levy rate is 10.5432 per thousand dollars of value, your tax will be $100,000/1,000 x 10.5432 = $1,054.32 tax liability
