Provincial Tax Deferment

Property Tax Deferment is a low-interest loan program that assists qualifying homeowners in British Columbia in paying the annual property taxes on their principal residences.

There are two tax deferment programs which are:

  1. The Regular Program which is for property owners who are 55 years or older, a surviving spouse or a person with disabilities as defined by regulation.
  2. The Family with Children Program which is for property owners who are financially supporting, at the time of application, a dependent child who is under the age of 18.

Property Tax Deferment is administered by the Ministry of Finance in conjunction with the Municipal Tax Collectors and the Surveyor of Taxes (in rural areas).

The property tax deferment program is no longer managed through municipalities. Please visit Property Tax Deferment Programs for more information and application forms.
