Late Property Tax Notices - Affecting Electoral Area F - [Rural Enderby] Residents

Posted Tuesday, June 23, 2015

The Regional District of North Okanagan was recently notified by the Property Taxation Branch of the Ministry of Finance advising of an issue regarding rural property tax notices.

Due to a system error, 12,556 property tax notices were not sent out by May 31st, as is normally the case in order for taxes to become payable by the July 2nd deadline [405,000 property tax notices were correctly sent out].

Ministry staff are aware of the error and new tax notices are being prepared and mailed out with an extended deadline of 38 days from the date of issue. The same extension applies for applications to receive the Home Owner Grant.

Taxpayers who contact the property Taxation Branch via phone [1-800-663-7867] or email [[email protected]] will be notified of the error and extended deadline with an automated message.

The affected properties are located in:

  • Regional District of North Okanagan – Electoral Area F [rural Enderby]
  • Columbia-Shuswap Regional District – Electoral Areas C,D, E & F
  • Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine – Electoral Area A
  • University Endowment Lands.

The Property Taxation Branch deeply regrets any confusion or inconvenience that this error has caused.
