Property Tax Information

The value of your property, as assessed by the BC Assessment Authority, is multiplied by the tax rates as set out by each of the taxing jurisdictions to determine your property taxes. Questions relating to your property assessment should be referred to the Assessment Authority office in Nanaimo (300-125 Wallace Street, Nanaimo V9R 5B2) at 1 866 825-8322.

Property Taxes Due July 4
If you do not receive your 2023 tax notice by June 9, call 250 248-6144. Regardless of your payment method, payment must be received at the City of Parksville by the due date or be subject to an immediate 5% penalty. An additional 5% penalty will be applied to current year property taxes outstanding at the end of the business day on September 15. Penalties also apply to any unclaimed home owner grants. Claim your home owner grant online with the Province of BC at gov.bc.ca/homeownergrant or use the Online Services tab link. Home owner grants must be claimed each year you are eligible. When making a payment at a bank or through online banking, allow at least two business days for bank processing.


BC Assessment produces uniform property assessments that form the basis for local and provincial taxation while providing information to assist people when making real estate decisions. For contact information and related links, please visit the website for the Vancouver Island Office.


The Property Tax Deferment Program is a low interest loan program that helps qualified BC homeowners pay their annual property taxes on their principal residence. You may qualify if you are 55 or older during the current year, a person with disabilities, or a family supporting children in certain circumstances. The City of Parksville no longer accepts deferment applications or renewals. All deferment applications and renewals will be administered by the Province of BC using the Tax Deferment Program website. Unpaid taxes, utilities, penalties, and interest from prior years must be paid to the City to be eligible to defer current year taxes. Residents must still apply for their home owner grant each year.

Questions should be directed to 1 888 355-2700 or refer to the deferment program website.
