GET YOUR PROPERTY TAX ACCOUNT BALANCE AND NOTICE
Property Tax Notices are issued mid-June of each year, with a due date of the last business day in July.
If you did not receive your property tax notice, taxes are still due by their due date.
WHY YOU MAY NOT HAVE RECEIVED A TAX NOTICE:
You may not get a tax notice when you:
- Buy a recently subdivided or stratified property. The property tax may have been billed to the “parent” property of a subdivision. Confirm with your lawyer or notary that your portion of taxes were adjusted as part of the sale.
- Buy an existing property, and we haven't been notified that you’re the new owner yet. Check the documents you received for the sale.
DID YOU RECEIVE A TAX NOTICE FOR A PROPERTY YOU DON’T OWN ANYMORE?
If you’ve received a property tax notice for a property you no longer own you are not responsible for paying the property tax.
- Send the property tax notice to the new owner of the property
- Return the property tax notice by mail to: Revenue & Collections Property Taxes, City of Penticton, 171 Main Street, Penticton, BC V2A 5R3
