What Your Property Taxes Pay For

What Your Property Taxes Pay For

The deadline has just passed to pay property taxes in Yelm.  Property owners often become discouraged as they watch hard-earned dollars disappear into governmental coffers without  a clue of what those dollars are being used for.  So, if you own property in Yelm, Washington, check out this cool tool put out by the Thurston County Assessor's office which allows you to place the assessed value of your home in the box and then spits out how the taxes you pay will be allocated.  The tool is based off of 2009 numbers, but it still gives a good picture of how funds are split between state, county and city departments. 


For more information on property taxes, visit the Thurston County Assessor's website.  This is an invaluable resource for assessing your property's value, learning more about how taxes work, and even finding the low-down on properties you are interested in buying.
