Tax deferment is a low interest Provincial loan that helps BC homeowners pay their annual property taxes on their principal residence.

To defer your Property Taxes you must first pay your annual utilities (water user fees, sewer user fees, and garbage fees on your Property Tax Notice) claim your Home Owner Grant, and a completed Property Tax Deferment form must be done online.  The same applies to annual renewal Property Tax Deferment forms.

For more information and to complete the Property Tax Deferment form click on the following link:  A 5% late penalty will apply if the application is not approved or if you withdraw your application before it is approved.
