The 2020 due date for property taxes is July 2, 2020. In order to provide financial relief to our residents, the last day for payment with no penalty is September 30, 2020. This change in penalty date will allow a 90-day extension to pay taxes without late penalties.
The 2020 property tax notices have now been mailed to all registered property owners. If you do not receive your notice by the second week of June, please contact the Financial Services Department at White Rock City Hall at 604-541-2280 or 604-541-2107.
All property owners, even new owners, are responsible for payment of property taxes by the due date to avoid penalty, regardless of whether a tax notice is received.
A 10 per-cent penalty will be levied to all accounts with outstanding balances on October 1, 2020. The penalty is also applicable on the home owner grant portion of your taxes. Unclaimed home owner grants are considered unpaid taxes and are subject to penalty.

The province has changed the application and renewal process for the Property Tax Deferment Program. Applications can no longer be submitted to the City of White Rock. They must be made through the province’s website.
To apply or for more information, visit gov.bc.ca/propertytaxdeferment or phone 1-888-355-2700.
Please Note: The deferment program does not include the “Other Fees & Charges” amount included on your tax notice or any applicable Home Owner Grant. To avoid penalties, apply for your grant and pay the “Other Fees & Charges” by the tax penalty date.
