Clark County will hold a town hall meeting regarding changes to property taxes.
The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. Jan. 28 in the Lewis River Reception Hall at the Battle Ground Community Center, 912 E. Main St., according to a county news release. Representatives from the county assessor’s and treasurer’s offices will explain the changes and answer questions.
Beginning Jan. 1, changes included education property taxes, higher income levels for the Senior Citizens and Disabled Persons Exemption and Deferral programs and graduated Real Estate Excise Tax.
The exemption and deferral programs offer tax relief to qualifying homeowners, and an additional 16,000 people might qualify due to a change in state law, according to the news release. From 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the community center and before the town hall, the assessor’s office will host an outreach event for seniors and people with disabilities affected by the changes.
Those who wish to learn more about the exemption or deferral programs can visit the second-floor joint lobby at the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St., Vancouver; call 564-397-2391, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the assessor’s office’s webpage.
