Get Involved in the Budget Process

Received your property assessment from BC Assessment and have questions about how your property taxes will be affected?

Homeowners are cautioned that big jumps in assessment values don’t automatically translate into big tax increases as long as the increase is within the average for the City.  Tax rates are established after adjusting for the average increase in overall assessments.

In Pitt Meadows, the average residential increase per the 2017 BC Assessment Completed Roll is 31%.  Homeowners whose assessment increased less than the 31% average will bear less of the 2017 tax increase that Council is deliberating on commencing January 11, 2017.

Deliberations on the City's 2017 budget take place on January 11 and 12 at 5:30 pm. Meetings are open to the public with opportunities for questions and comments.
