Property Tax Deferment Programs
Property Tax Deferment is administered by the ministry in conjunction with the Municipal Tax Collectors and the Surveyor of Taxes (in rural areas).
Property Tax Deferment is a low-interest loan program that assists qualifying homeowners in British Columbia in paying annual property taxes on their principal residences.
There are two tax deferment programs which are:
- The Regular Program which is for property owners who are 55 years or older, a surviving spouse or a person with disabilities as defined by regulation.
- The Family with Children Program which is for property owners who are financially supporting, at the time of application, a dependant child who is under the age of 18.
Hard copies of NEW Tax Deferment Application forms are available at City Hall. If you have deferred your taxes in the past, please bring the renewal form that the Provincial government mailed to you. Blank Tax Deferment Renewal forms are no longer available.
