PROPERTY ASSESSMENT APPEAL BOARD

What we do

The Board receives appeals on assessments for all types of properties from single family dwellings to farms to major industry.

Typical issues deal with:

  • Is the property assessed at actual (market) value?
  • Is the property correctly classified?
  • Does the property qualify for a tax exemption?

THE DEADLINE TO APPEAL TO THE BOARD IS APRIL 30. You can file your appeal using the Submit an Appeal link.

Our objective is to assist you in resolving your appeal, if possible, without the need for a hearing. Settling an appeal by mutual agreement is less expensive and less time consuming for you, BC Assessment and the Board. If the appeal is not settled, one or more Board members will make a decision and issue a written decision.

Board members are appointed by the Provincial Government and are independent from BC Assessment (who created the assessment), the Property Assessment Review Panels (the first level of appeal) and the Government. You can see a list of Board members and their backgrounds by clicking here.

See the Appeal Guide which will assist you with all the stages of your appeal.
