Bringing City Hall to West Seattle, Mayor Jenny Durkan addressed the concern for affordable housing directly from those affected by King County’s property tax increase.

…”They didn’t realize that it would go up this much. The increase can be anywhere from 9% to 30% in King County. That’s significant,” said Angelina Wallent, managing broker with John L. Scott.

She says this tax increase is dramatic and it’s affecting her clients. Wallent says in 2012 she helped a long time friend close on a home where she put roots, raised her children, but this year’s property tax increase is causing her to change her address.
