Property Assessment Review Panel

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for the safety and health of the general public and the Property Assessment Review Panels, all property complaint hearings for 2022 will be conducted by either conference call and the online evidence submission system or by written submissions. 

Filing a property assessment complaint (appeal)

Property assessment complaints are not valid if filed directly with the Property Assessment Review Panels or the Property Assessment Review Panel administration office – all complaints must be filed directly with BC Assessment by January 31.  We encourage you to speak to BC Assessment regarding any concerns that you have with your assessment, classification or exemptions prior to filing a formal complaint (appeal).  You can contact BC Assessment online at www.bcassessment.ca or by phone at 1-866-825-8322.

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.

Property Assessment Review Panel members receive their appointments from the Minister of Finance. 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?
