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, 2015.
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, 2015, 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, 2015 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 Wednesday, July 1st, 2015.
