Why would the amount I pay go down? As the Kittitas area grows, property taxes are spread across a wider tax base, which can result in lower taxes for individual homeowners.

What is the "estimated rate"? By law, the levies are set as a total dollar amount to be collected. The total levy amounts are divided amongst all taxable property owners in Kittitas.
