Please remember to apply for the BC Homeowners Grant if you are eligible. To apply for the grant, you have to complete the application sent with your tax bill and return to local municipality. In most municipalities, you are able to apply for the Home Owner Grant online. It is as simple as visiting your municipality’s website and look for the link to apply for your Home Owner Grant. You will need your Folio number and access code that can be found in your property tax notice.
If your lender is collecting the property taxes for you, you are still required to apply for the grant. Your municipality will charge you by a 5% penalty if you don’t pay your property taxes or claim the grant by July 2nd, 2019.
If you have any questions or need to find out information on the amount of money that has been collected by your lender to pay towards your property taxes, please contact your lender directly or feel free to contact me and we will be more than pleased to help.
As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
