What is a Property Assessment Review Panel?
A Property Assessment Review Panel or PARP is the first level of appeal for property assessments in British Columbia. Complainants file their complaint with the British Columbia Assessment Authority to have a 30 minute hearing before a Panel.
Note that you must file your notice of complaint (appeal) with BC Assessment. To access BC Assessment’s Online Appeal Form, use the following link: http://www.bcassessment.ca/Services-products/appeals.
Property Assessment Review Panel members receive their appointments from the Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. So what happens when a PARP hears a property assessment complaint and what do I need to do to prepare for my presentation to the Panel?
The video found below offers a shortened version of a PARP hearing.
