We want to know how this year’s unusually high property-tax increase is affecting you.
The bills are hitting mailboxes in the coming days, following state lawmakers’ approval of a property-tax hike to fund schools last year.
The increases vary by area, with averages of nearly 17 percent in King County, 16 percent in Snohomish County and 11.5 percent in Pierce County.
Whether you are considering an extra job, or maybe thinking about moving because of the rising fee, contact reporter Jim Brunner at email@example.com or 206-515-5628 to share your experience.
