Welcome to the 2016 Assessment Roll (effective January 4, 2016). Here you will find 2016 Assessment Roll property information including regional news releases and top valued properties lists.
Your 2016 property assessment
BC Assessment assesses 2016 properties reflecting their physical condition and permitted use as of October 31, 2015 using a valuation date of July 1, 2015.
In determining assessed value, an appraiser considers a wide variety of factors such as size, age, shape, quality, condition and location of properties. Services in the area (location, views, neighbourhood) and supply and demand may also influence property value. Changes such as new construction or inventory, permitted use (e.g. zoning), property class, occupation, eligibility for an exemption or in the taxing jurisdiction boundary will be reflected on the assessment roll.

2016 property assessment notices
All property owners would have received a notice of their 2016 assessment in the mail in early January 2016.
Access property assessments online
BC Assessment's website provides an e-valueBC service which enables the public to compare the current year's property assessments for most properties in B.C. throughout the year.
In addition, e-valueBC also publishes the sale price of most properties that sold between January 1, 2015 and October 31, 2015.
It is important to understand that your 2016 Assessment Notice is not a property tax notice. BC Assessment does not have a direct role in setting property taxes.
Taxing authorities (municipalities, regional districts) set their tax rates for property taxes based on their budget requirements and have all responsibility for property tax notices. Please contact your municipality or taxing authority if you have questions about your property taxes.
