BC Additional School Tax on High-Valued Properties

Updated January 2, 2019

The Provincial Additional School Tax starts in 2019 and applies to most high-valued residential properties in the province, including:

  • Detached homes
  • Stratified condominium or townhouse units
  • Most vacant land

The additional school tax does not apply to non-stratified rental buildings with four or more housing units.

For mixed-use properties, only the residential portion of the property’s assessed value above $3 million will be taxable.

The additional tax rate is:

  • 0.2% on the residential portion assessed between $3 million and $4 million
  • 0.4% tax rate on the residential portion assessed over $4 million

BC Assessment determines if additional school tax applies. If you believe your property should be exempt from additional school tax, contact BC Assessment to discuss your concerns.

Your Property Value Change and Property Taxes Video

Updated January 2, 2019

An increase in your assessment does not necessarily mean an increase in your property taxes. Property tax changes are generally impacted by your assessment's change relative to your community's average assessment change.

The video below from BC Assessment explains what could happen to your property taxes if your assessment is lower, higher or similar to the average change for your property class.


 

Property Tax Due Dates

Property tax notices are mailed out the last week of May and are due the first business day after the July 1 holiday. A 5% penalty will be added to outstanding current taxes at midnight on the due date and another 5% penalty first business day of September. If a Home Owner Grant is not claimed by these dates, the outstanding amount is subject to the same penalties.
