The Comox Valley Regional District is preparing the 2020 parcel tax assessment roll as required by Section 202 of the Community Charter.
The province includes the parcel taxes on the rural property tax notices they issue each May to all rural property owners. The province is responsible for collection of the parcel taxes on behalf of the CVRD and remits the funds collected to the CVRD in August each year.
The parcel tax roll review panel will meet on February 20, 2020 at 9:30 a.m. in the board room of the Comox Valley Regional District, located at 770 Harmston Avenue, Courtenay, B.C. to hear requests that the roll be amended.
Property owners are able to request an amendment to the parcel tax roll only with respect to their own property and only for the following reasons:
- error or omission of the name or address on the roll
- error or omission respecting the inclusion of parcel
- error or omission respecting the taxable area or taxable frontage of a parcel
- an exemption had been improperly allowed or disallowed.
In order for a request to be considered by the panel, it must be made in writing and received at the CVRD office at least 48 hours prior to the sitting of the parcel tax roll review panel.
Enquiries can be made by email or by calling 250-334-6033.
