Defer Your Taxes

The British Columbia Tax Deferment Program is a low interest loan program that allows you to defer your annual property taxes. You can apply to defer your current year property taxes.

We must receive your application on or before the July 2 due date (or the next business day if July 2 is a statutory holiday or weekend) to avoid a 10% penalty.
