Property Taxes

Property Taxes are due July 4, 2017.

To avoid a penalty, property tax payments and properly completed applications for the Home Owner Grant (HOG), must be received on or before the property tax due date, there are no exceptions for late payments.  


You can claim your Home Owner Grant online using the access code on your Property Tax Notice. 

All Property Tax Notices are mailed in the last week of May.  Property owners who have not received their tax notice should contact the Finance Department at 604-885-1986 or by email to finance@sechelt.ca.

To help ensure you receive your Property Taxation Notice without delay, please make sure that the District has your correct mailing address. Please change your address if required, with BC Assessment Authority. If ownership of property changes you must provide documentation to the District Office.

Property owners are responsible for payment of their annual property taxes by the due date to avoid a penalty, whether or not they receive a Property Tax Notice.

If a property within the District of Sechelt has delinquent taxes owing against it, the District will begin proceedings to recover those costs through its annual tax sale.  The tax sale is a public auction held each year on the last Monday of September.  At the time of a tax sale a list of all properties for auction is available from the District. For more information regarding tax sale please refer to the Tax Sale page.
