Province Announces Changes to Property Tax Deferment Process

The British Columbia Government has announced changes to the property tax deferment process. Starting in May 2020, eligible British Columbians can apply online to defer their property taxes. Additionally, property owners can choose to auto-renew their deferment application. Deferment application and renewal forms can no longer be submitted to the Town of Sidney. More information about the changes to the process can be found within the BC Government's media release on the subject.

You can learn more about the Province's property tax deferment program, including eligibility, on the BC Government's Property Tax Deferment web page.

If you have any questions about deferring your property taxes, you can contact the BC Government by phone at 250-387-0555 (toll free: 1-888-355-2700) or by email at TaxDeferment@gov.bc.ca.
