Each year the BC Assessment updates the assessed values of properties within the province. These assessments along with the City's tax rates are the basis for calculating your municipal
Property Taxes each year. In addition to collecting taxes for municipal purposes, the City is also required to collect and remit taxes on behalf of other governments (such as school taxes on behalf of the Province of British Columbia).
