Due Date: TUESDAY, JULY 4, 2017
A number of factors determine the amount of your property taxes. The B.C. Assessment Authority, the governing body that determines the value of your property, conducts an assessment of your property's market value as of July 1st each year. On December 31st of each year, the B.C. Assessment Authority mails a Property Assessment Notice to each property owner.
The City determines property taxes by applying current tax rates approved by Council to the assessed market value of your property to ascertain the amount of taxes you are required to pay each year.
Important Information: Home Owner Grants must be claimed by the tax due date to avoid penalty. You will not receive the grant if you fail to fully complete the application either online or on the front portion of your tax notice. Taxes are due July 4, 2016.
