Deadline to appeal BC Assessment is
February 2, 2015
Property owners who disagree with their assessment should do homework by:
comparing their assessment with neighbouring properties; and
contacting BCA at 1-866-valueBC (1-866-825-8322) and talking to staff who can make adjustments if there is an obvious error, for example if BCA included a complete renovation, when it was merely a spruce-up.
Property owners who decide to appeal their property assessment must complete a Notice of Complaint (Appeal) form available on www.bcassessment.ca. Under the For Public menu option, select Notice of Complaint (Appeal) Process or go directly to http://www.bcassessment.ca/public/Pages/AppealingyourAssessment.aspx
The deadline to file the appeal is February 2, 2015.
Each year less than 1% of BC property owners appeal their assessment.
Note: you can’t appeal your taxes, you can only appeal your assessment.
