Property Taxes in Municipalities
If your property is located in a city, town, district or village, it is in a municipality. When you own property in a municipality, you will receive your property tax notice from your municipality. You pay your property taxes to your municipal office.
Your municipality collects taxes for the services they provide and on behalf of other organizations to raise funds for services. Some of the organizations your municipality may collect taxes on behalf of are:
- Provincial Government (school and policing)
- Regional Districts
- Regional Hospital Districts
- British Columbia Transit Authority
- BC Assessment
- Municipal Finance Authority
If you have questions about your property taxes, contact your municipality.
