PROPERTY TAX INFORMATION
Property Tax Notices are mailed out each year by the end of May and are due July 2nd. If July 2nd falls on a weekend or statutory holiday, the due day will fall on the following business day without penalty. Property taxes are determined by dividing the current assessed value of land and improvements as determined by BC Assessment by 1,000 and multiplying by the rate by class type.
The Property Tax Rate Schedule Tax Rates (per thousand dollars of assessed value) per year can be accessed below:
