Property Taxes are the City of Prince George's main revenue source with which to provide valuable services to residents. Tax bills are mailed out at the end of May and due on the first Friday in July unless July 1 falls on a Friday, in which case taxes will be due the following Friday.
Property tax collection also includes revenue the City collects on behalf of other agencies. For example, a portion of property tax collections are distributed to the Province for School Tax, BC Assessment, the Municipal Finance Authority, and the Regional District of Fraser Fort George.
Home owners may also apply for the Provincial Home Owner Grant that helps reduce the amount of residential property taxes they pay on their primary residence.
The City provides water, sewer, and solid waste collection services. These utilities charges are billed separately from property taxes. Flat rate bills are billed twice a year and are typically due at the end of March and at the end of September. Metered accounts are billed quarterly. These fees support operating costs as well as the replacement of aging infrastructure.
