Property Tax Notices
The property tax notices are mailed out by the end of May each year. If you do not receive your property tax notice by mid-June, please contact the Town office. It is the home owner's responsibility to ensure that we have the correct mailing address. Avoid late charges by making payments on time.
Property Tax Assessments
Annually, the value of your property is assessed by BC Assessment Authority. Questions relating to your property assessment should be directed to the BC Assessment Office noted on the front of your assessment. Recorded information is available at 1-877-356-9313 or on the BC Assessment website.
Property Tax Deferment
The BC Government is making it easier to apply for the propery tax deferment program.
BC Residential property owners can apply for the property tax deferment on their principal residence online, quickly and easily. Owners can choose to auto renew their application.
Municipalities will no longer be responsible for accepting deferment applications.
Property owners will still make outstanding utility payments to the Town.
