Zeballos Property Taxes
Property Tax Notices are mailed out at the end of May each year.
The Property Tax Due Date for 2021 is Friday, July 2nd. On July 3rd, accounts with outstanding balance are subject to a 10% penalty – this includes any unclaimed Homeowner grants.
What happens if I don’t pay my property tax?
Unpaid property taxes become taxes in arrears after December 31 of the current taxation year, and interest starts to accrue on the total unpaid amount. After one year, if still unpaid, these property taxes and accrued interest become delinquent after December 31. A property with delinquent taxes is subject to tax sale if those taxes are unpaid by the statutory tax sale date which is the last Monday in September each year.
Changes to Homeowner Grant Program
As of 2021, the Province is delivering the Homeowner Grant program. This means all eligible home owners will be required to directly apply to the Province online or over the phone to claim their grant.
The Village of Zeballos is now unable to process retroactive or new homeowner grant applications.
Be sure to apply before the property tax due date of July 2, 2021 to avoid late payment penalties.
To apply, you will require the following information:
- Jurisdiction Number
- Roll Number
- Social Insurance Number
Jurisdiction and Roll Numbers can be found on your Property Tax Notice or by searching your civic address on www.bcassessment.ca.
Apply for the homeowner grant anytime of the day using the simple and secure online system.
