Property Tax Notice

During the month of May, you will receive your property tax notice. If you are a rural property owner of the Cariboo Regional District, the Surveyor of Taxes in Victoria sends you your tax notice. The Province collects your school, rural and CRD service taxes, and then pays the CRD a lump sum payment in August. CRD staff never see an individual property owners' tax notice.

CRD Services

The CRD provides tax information to the Surveyor of Taxes for local government services provided within the region. Most of the items listed under "Local Services" are collected for the CRD. The exceptions are the BC Assessment Authority tax and the Municipal Finance Authority tax.

Most of our regional services are grouped together and identified under the line "Area () Cariboo". Regional services include administrative services; bylaw enforcement; general government; grants-in-aid; regional land use planning; rural refuse; solid waste management; and weed control. Except for library services, all taxes are collected on both the assessed value of land and buildings.

The library tax, found under the line “Area () Library” is the only service where tax is calculated on the assessed value of your buildings.

Where services are provided to a specified area, such as fire protection, a separate line item is shown under the “Local Services” heading.

On certain services, taxes are collected through a parcel tax. These fees are a designated amount charged to every parcel connected, or able to connect, to the service described. You can see these charges under the “Parcel Tax” heading and the line item indicates the service.

Hospital Services

The Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District provides funding to health authorities to build hospitals and purchase equipment. Regional Hospital District tax is identified under the line “Cariboo-Chilcotin Hospital.”

If you have any tax notice questions, please contact the Cariboo Regional District Chief Financial Officer at (250) 392-3351 or 1-800-665-1636.
