In 2013, an Island County resident owning (or, mortgaging) $100,000 of real property (land – with no residence on it) in unincorporated North Whidbey Island now pays $868.40 annually in property taxes and property assessments: an increase of at least $23.95 for that same $100,000 parcel of land from last year.
“Assessments” are assessed on a per-parcel basis, and Island County property parcel assessments include:
- Whidbey Conservation District $5.50 (brand new in 2010)
- Forest Protection $17.90
- Clean Water Utility $39.13 (brand new in 2010)
