Property Taxes

Tax rates, together with assessed value and property use, determine the taxation amount for each property.  Municipal tax rates are set annually based on funds required to support local services.  Included on your property tax notice are levies for Regional Hospital District, Powell River Regional District, School Tax, BC Assessment and Municipal Finance Authority.  The City collects these levies on behalf of these agencies and has no control or input in establishing these rates. 

Residential property tax notices also include annual utility charges (water, garbage & sewer) while Commercial property notices include only sewer charges and receive a separate annual billing for water.

The due date each year for taxes is July 2, or the first working day thereafter.  A 10% penalty will be applied to current taxes if not paid before or on the due date.
