Property Taxes

Property taxes are due on Tuesday, July 3, 2018.

As of July 4, 2018, a 10% penalty will be applied to all outstanding current year taxes.

Property tax rates, together with assessed value and property use, determine the taxation amount for each property.  BC Assessment determines the assessed value and the City sets the municipal tax rates annually based on the funds required to support local services.  Your property tax notice contains levies from other taxing authorities, including the Regional Hospital District, Powell River Regional District, School Tax, BC Assessment and Municipal Finance Authority.  The City collects these levies on behalf of the other agencies and has no control or input over the amounts levied.
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.
