Property Taxes


Your property taxes are an important source of funds required for the District to continue providing essential services.

Approximately 50% of your tax bill is collected by the District and remitted to other taxing authorities. The District is required to remit these funds by August 1 even if they have not been collected.


Deferring your property taxes ensures the District has access to the funds required to maintain services, while property owners make the payment later. Under this program, the Province pays property taxes on behalf of eligible owners, who then pay the Province back later.

Homeowners may qualify for the deferment program if they meet the following criteria: 

  • 55 or older during the current year
  • it is your principal or primary residence
  • a surviving spouse of any age
  • a person with disabilities
  • a parent, stepparent or financially supporting a child

Property Tax Deferment

Property Tax Deferment is a property tax assistance program offered by the Province. Property Tax Deferment is a low-interest loan program that assists qualifying homeowners in British Columbia in paying the annual property taxes on their homes. The program is administered by the Province in conjunction with municipal tax collectors.

There are two different deferment programs:

  • 55 & Older, Surviving Spouse, Persons with a Disability
  • Families with Children under 18

Property Tax Deferment allows you to defer your current property taxes less any available Home Owner Grant. The deferment must be applied for on or before the tax due date to avoid penalties. If you miss the property tax due date, you have until December 31 of the current taxation year to apply. Before applying for deferment, you must pay all penalties, interest, and any previous years' property taxes as these cannot be deferred.

You must apply for each year you wish to defer your taxes.

The 2020 tax deferment application period has closed. Beginning in 2020, municipalities will no longer accept deferment applications. Visit the Province's website at the link below for more information.
