Franklin County first half 2017 property taxes are due by May 1, 2017 as the typical April 30th deadline falls on a weekend.
For taxpayers mailing payments, the postmark is considered the payment date and those marked after May 1st will be considered delinquent as set forth in RCW 84.56.020.
Due to logistical changes within the local post offices, the only way to ensure a post mark as of the May 1st deadline is to physically present the payment to the postmaster at either Pasco Post office by 4pm and request it to be postmarked.
