Property Taxes

The value of a property for taxation purposes is determined by BC Assessment, an organization that is independent from the municipality. Provincial and local governments use property assessments to determine what tax rates may be required to ensure the revenue needed to pay for public services. View this information from BC Assessment designed to provide an explanation, or visit BC Assessment on YouTube for additional videos.
