The City of Vancouver has struck an independent third-party commission to review its current property tax policies. We’re interested in looking at how property taxation is shared between residential and business properties, and we’re also looking at defining the top three to five issues that drive volatility in property assessments, and whether there is any way the City can mitigate that volatility through the tools and levers it has at its disposal.
The last major review was completed in 2007. You can find the report delivered to Vancouver’s City Council here.
Join us at one of our public panels to give us your thoughts on property taxation and assessments. Or send your ideas via email:
Please submit your comments in Chinese or Punjabi if that is more convenient for you.
