Assessments were in the mail this week, but they can be found online already. B.C. Assessments’ e-valueBC service went live January 1. The site allows you to check other properties’ assessed values and compare them to their yours.
Jason Grant, regional assessor for B.C. Assessment, told the Courier that changes in assessments don’t automatically translate into a corresponding change in taxes. “It’s going to depend on where you are relative to the average,” he said.
So, what should property owners expect next year?
“We are already, believe it or not, six months in towards our next valuation cut off of July 2016 and the market has moved significantly already since July. So if it keeps on this trajectory, there will be an increase again next year for 2017,” Grant said.
Happy read with the Fighter Guide!
