Settling disagreements on property value.

You can contact Whitman County Assessor’s office at (509) 397-6220 to review your valuation whenever you have questions about your property value. Property owners can often settle disagreements at this level without continuing the appeal process. However, you still need to preserve your appeal rights by timely filing your appeal form with the Board of Equalization.
