Agricultural Land Reserve

If your property is located in the agricultural land reserve (ALR) according to the Provincial Agricultural Land Commission (ALC), you are eligible for a reduction in the amount of property taxes you pay each year.

The ALR tax exemption reduces the amount of school tax you pay on the assessed value of the land by 50%. BC Assessment determines if your property qualifies for the exemption.

The exemption is automatically included in your property assessment and applied to your taxes by your taxing authority.
