Property Tax Due Date: July 8, 2016
Prince George City Council has approved a 3.21% tax increase for 2016 that maintains City operations and existing service levels while allowing for targeted increases in some key areas:
- Snow control: an increase of $700,000 to bring the annual budget for snow operations to $7 million.
- RCMP service levels: three new officers.
- Aging infrastructure: an additional $1.5 million allocated to the annual capital budget to address costs related to improving aging facilities.
In addition to these new investments, Council has been committed to maintaining a $7 million budget for annual road rehabilitation.
Property taxes can be paid in person – cash, cheque, or debit – at City Hall (1100 Patricia Boulevard). Payments can also be made at financial institutions; residents should check that this service is provided by their financial institution. Property tax notices are mailed out in the last week of May. Property owners who have not received their tax notice by the second week of June should contact the City at 250.561.7600.
