Property Tax

Tax Overview

Washington County collects property taxes on more than 100,000 parcels each year. The amount of tax each property pays is based on valuation and classification information collected by the county’s licensed appraisers. The county’s taxation system uses that information to calculate taxes paid by each property.

Property Tax payments may be made via U.S. mail, online, bill pay service, or payments may be made in person at the Stillwater Government Center. Call 651-430-6175 between 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday for more information.
