Information on filing destroyed property

Questions & Answers Regarding Destroyed Property

Destroyed Property can be filed with the Assessor's office any time after destruction. If the damaged occured as the result of a natural disaster, the current year taxes on the property will be prorated and cancelled. If taxes have already been paid, a refund will be coming to the property owner from the County Treasurer. Refunds can be made up to three years from when taxes were due. Mail your form to the County Assessor at the address at the top of this page.

General Assessor's office information

Welcome to the Ferry County Assessor’s office web site.  I hope that the information that you find here will help you with your research.  If you need more help, please don’t hesitate to contact the office during our public hours.

The primary role of the Assessor’s office is to establish the fair market value for all property in Ferry County for tax purposes.  The Assessor is required by law to value property at market value and to assure that all values are equitable, fair and uniform to all property owners in Ferry County.

It is my responsibility as your assessor to insure that all property owners are treated fairly and impartially in accordance with our state laws.  It is our sincere desire to serve you in an effective, responsible and courteous manner.

Taxable property is divided into two classes:  Real property includes land and all buildings, structures, improvement to the land, and mobile homes.  Personal property includes machinery and equipment, fixtures, furniture, and other items that are movable in nature.  Household goods and personal effects are exempt from property taxation.

The amount of taxes to be paid is determined not only by your assessed value but by the various taxing districts such as the State of Washington, County and City legislative authorities, fire districts, school districts and other ‘junior’ districts, as well as the voting public in its consideration of special levies.

The assessed value of your property multiplied by the levy rate for the area that your property lies within established the amount of property taxes that you pay each year.  This amount can change from year to year based upon changes in your assessed value and changes in the levy rate in your area.
