Property taxes in municipalities
Last updated: July 17, 2023
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'll 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 their services. Some of the organizations your municipality may collect taxes on behalf of are:
- Provincial Government (school and policing tax)
- 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.
