Regional Districts and Regional Hospital Districts

Regional Districts may submit an informational insert to be printed and mailed out with Rural Property Tax Notices each year. The insert will be sent to owners of all folios within a regional district, except owners with BC Assessment Bulk Mail codes.

A finalized tax notice insert must be submitted by April 1st each year as a file attachment using eTaxBC. Content will not be reviewed due to resource and time constraints. No changes to content may be made after April 1st.

Regional Districts must ensure that the insert conforms to the tax notice insert margin and sizing guidelines. Inserts that fail to comply will be rejected and not sent out.
