Squamish Property Taxes

If you own or lease property or mobile homes in BC, you will be subject to paying property tax annually. The tax, paid to the municipality with rates varying based on the municipality you are in, is responsible for funding services such as police and fire protection, garbage collection, schools, and hospitals.

At the beginning of the year, you will receive a property assessment notice informing you of the property value as of July 1st of last year. You will then receive a tax notice that calculates how much tax you owe based on the assessed value, and it will then be your responsibility to pay the amount to the municipal office before the deadline.

The amount of property tax and its rates are based on how much funding is needed to provide services for the year; for example, if your community decides to start a new service, the higher cost may be reflected in your taxes. The amount also depends on other factors such as property classification and location.

Generally, your tax will consist of a Municipal Tax as determined by your municipality and a School Tax determined by the number of residences and their values in your district.
