The District of Lake Country is letting the community know that 2023 Property Tax Notices will be arriving in mailboxes next week. The property tax bill is provided 6 months in advance/6 months in arrears for the full calendar year January to December 2023. Taxes are due by 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 4, 2023.

In addition to payment, eligible homeowners are reminded to claim home owner grants by July 4. The Provincial Home Owner Grant program helps to reduce the amount of residential property taxes that homeowners pay on their primary residence. Home owner grant applications must be submitted online or by phone directly to the Province of British Columbia. For more information on the Provincial Home Owner Grant application process, visit or call 1-888-355-2700 to speak with a live agent.

To help property owners avoid waiting in a potentially long lineup to pay their property taxes, there are several ways you can make a payment without having to visit Municipal Hall customer service:

  • Online or in person through your financial institution;
  • By post-dated cheque through the mail; or
  • By using the 24-hour drop box at the north entrance to Municipal Hall.

Please note that postmarks on mailed remittances will not be considered as date of payment.

A 10% penalty will be added to current taxes (including unclaimed Home Owner Grant) remaining unpaid after 6:00 p.m. July 4.

The District of Lake Country has launched online portal to provide citizens with 24/7 access to their property tax and utility billing information. More services will be added in the coming months. Lake Country property owners and utility customers can now create a personal profile and sign up to:
