If you own real property in Greater Victoria, you would have received your Property Tax Assessment notice from your municipality within the last week or so. Because of this, I have recently received a handful of questions from my awesome clients regarding how Property Tax works; how the property tax is calculated; and how they go might about challenge the amount they will be charged?
To assist my clients and others work through the process, I have put together a 10-page booklet entitled the “Tax Fighters Guide for the Home Owner-A guide to appealing your Property Assessment Notice”. The booklet discuss how taxes work; how the assessment authority assesses the value of your home; how do you appeal your assessment if you disagree; along with a glossary of Property Tax terms you need to be familiar with. Remember, you have until January 31st, 2017 to make your appeal.
If you would like your own complimentary copy of the guide, send me a quick note via the contact link on this website, email or Facebook and I will happily forward a copy along to you.
In addition, to sending you the “Tax Fighters Guide for the Home Owner” I will also include a copy of the 22-page booklet “Buying a Home in British Columbia-A comprehensive guide to buying a home in Victoria, BC”. If you’re considering purchasing a home in Victoria, this guide is a great step-by-step guide to the process. Looking forward to hearing from you.
