Property Tax Deferment

The Province of B.C.'s Property Tax Deferment Program is a low interest loan program that helps qualified B.C. home owners pay their annual property taxes on their principal residence.

  • B.C. residential property owners can apply online to defer property taxes on their principal residence. Owners can also choose to auto-renew their application.
  • Municipalities are no longer responsible for accepting property tax deferment applications.
  • Only your current year’s taxes may be deferred. You must pay your garbage user fees or
    property taxes owing from a prior year (if applicable) before you can defer your current year taxes.  Your garbage user fee is shown on the front of your property tax notice under "Local Services Taxes-Bylaw" 
*Note: if you prefer a paper application, please call 1-888-355-2700. A paper application can take longer for the Province to receive and review; you may risk late payment penalties if you are not eligible.
