Bulk Property Owners

If you are responsible for paying rural property taxes for 20 or more folios, the Property Bulk Administration (PBA) account will allow you to use our secure online service called eTaxBC to manage your list of rural property tax folio numbers and pay your rural property taxes.  You will still receive your tax notices in the mail; however, you will no longer receive a paper bulk listing. You must use eTaxBC to access a list of your rural folio numbers.

The benefits of using eTaxBC include:
 

  • direct online payments, resulting in more efficient payment processing
  • one-time grouping for making payments instead of annual applications
  • a choice for making either single or multiple payments for groups of folios through "Make a Payment"
  • electronic access to your list of rural folios by bulk mail code for review and payment purposes
  • a secure online message system to request grouping by multiple bulk mail codes
  • the ability to manage how other users access your account using an eTaxBC Master logon
  • the ability to claim your home owner grant online, if applicable
  • reduce the number of duplicate payments
  • no need to download executable files
  • no need to mail us a cheque or paper notices

If you’re a Financial Institution who remits rural property tax payments on behalf of property owners, the Property Bulk Administration (PBA) account will allow you to use our secure online service called eTaxBC to manage your list of rural property tax folios and pay your rural property taxes.

  • you can review outstanding balances on your rural property tax accounts
  • you can conveniently manage your list of rural folios (including adding and removing folios)
