The Property Tax Notices for 2013 have been mailed out and are due for payment by July
2nd, 2013. If you have not received your tax notice, or if you have recently purchased a
home, please contact City Hall at 250-837-2161. Failure to receive a property tax notice
does not relieve the owner from payment nor penalty for late payment. We DO accept
cheques, post-dated to July 2nd, 2013.

If you are unable to pay your taxes in full before the due date, please ensure you apply for
your Home Owner Grant before then. Payments received and Home Owner Grants
applied for, after July 2nd, 2013, are subject to a 10% penalty on the current balance
outstanding. Customers on the installment plan should also make sure that they claim the
Home Owner Grant by July 2nd, 2013 in order to avoid the penalty on that portion of their
property taxes.

If you are mailing your payment please note that postmarks are NOT accepted as proof of
timely payment.

City Hall is open Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We will be closed
Monday, July 1st, 2013.

Tania McCabe, CA
Deputy Director of Finance
