Oliver residents are encouraged to check their mailboxes and email accounts for the 2018 Property Tax Notices that have been placed in the mail this week.
This year’s due date for paying property taxes is July 3.
At its April 25 special meeting, Oliver council adopted the 2018 Tax Rate Bylaw where residents with an average home assessment in both 2017 and 2018 will see their municipal tax payments increase by $48.81.
Property tax notices will also include levies collected for other agencies such as the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen, provincial school and hospital taxes, and policing to name a few.
Along with the tax notices, residents will also receive a 2018 Oliver Tax Information Guide filled with information on taxes. This information is also available on the Town’s website at http://www.oliver.ca/finance
The Town of Oliver is here to process tax payments and assist with claiming Home Owner Grants. However, residents who wish to avoid lineups can do so by going online to claim their Home Owner Grant and pay their taxes via online banking.
