BC Home Owner Grant

Fort Nelson, BC - Property owners in the Northern Rockies can expect to receive their 2023 tax notices in the mail this week as they were mailed May 19. Residents who have previously enrolled in eSend electronic billing should have received their tax notices already as they were emailed on May 18.

Property taxes are not increased proportionately to property value increases. They are calculated based on what is needed to balance the Municipality’s budget for any particular year. For 2022 the Municipality's overall tax demand was $20.88 million. For 2023 it is $22.43 million. General municipal taxation in 2023 will account for approximately 47 per cent of the Municipality’s budget.
