Deferment Application forms for prior year property taxes can NO LONGER be accepted by the Finance Department.
Tax Deferment Program
The Province of British Columbia offers two variations of the Property tax Deferment Program which is a low interest loan program that assists qualified BC home owners to pay their annual property taxes. Qualifications vary so please review each program to determine which one you qualify for.
- Property Tax Deferment – 55 and older, surviving spouse, Person with a Disability (as defined by regulation)
- Property Tax Deferment – Families with Children
Starting May 2020 the Property Tax Deferment program will launch a new online Property Tax Deferment application at gov.bc.ca/propertytaxdeferment to make deferring your taxes easier – eliminating the need for paper forms and allowing you to auto renew .
Please note, the District of Mission will no longer be responsible for accepting deferment applications.
Property owners must still apply for their Home Owner Grant and make outstanding utility payments to the municipality.
