Since taking office on January 1, 2015, diligent search and inquiry has been made <br />and the County Treasurer is unable to collect the personal property taxes.

No statement, guarantee, or <br />representation to the quality or diligence of activities undertaken by the previous Kittitas County <br />Treasurer, or prior to January 1, 2015, can be made. <br />Attesting to the same and requesting cancellation, attached hereto is a list of the uncollectible <br />personal property taxes, see attached Exhibit A, together with an Affidavit of Uncollectible <br />Personal Property Tax pursuant to RCW 84.56.240, and see attached Exhibit B. <br />In accordance with RCW 84.56.270, upon approval by the Board of County Commissioners by <br />resolution duly adopted, the Treasurer will petition the Kittitas County Superior Court to finally <br />cancel and extinguish the lien of said delinquent personal property taxes currently on the county <br />tax rolls, which are delinquent, no longer active, and beyond hope of collection. <br />Sincerely, <br />Brett Wachsmith <br />Kittitas County Treasurer <br />Enclosure: <br />Listing of Uncollectible Personal Property Taxes (Exhibit A) <br />Affidavit of Uncollectible Personal Property Tax (Exhibit B) <br />205 West Fifth Ave Ste #102 <br />Ellensburg, Washington 98926 <br />Phone (509) 962-7535 ♦ Facsimile (509) 933-8212 <br />
