Property tax notices have been mailed.  If you have not received your 2019 tax notice, please contact City Hall at 250-746-6126.

Payments must be received by 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 2, 2019 to be accepted without penalty.  All unpaid 2019 taxes (including unpaid taxes resulting from unclaimed Home Owner Grants) are subject to a 5% PENALTY AFTER JULY 2, 2019 and a further 5% PENALTY AFTER SEPTEMBER 3, 2019.

Postmarks on mailed remittances will not be considered as date of payment.

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR HOME OWNER GRANT:

You can claim your Home Owner Grant online at HERE by using the access code on your property tax notice, in person at City Hall or by mail.

Please note: It is not necessary to make a payment in order to claim the Home Owner Grant.  To avoid a penalty on the unpaid taxes resulting from unclaimed Home Owner Grant, it must be claimed by 4:00 p.m. on July 2, 2019.
