UPDATE – January 10, 2017: BC Gov News – Increased home owner grant helps families with property taxes
The Home Owner Grant reduces the amount of property tax you pay for your principal residence.
This grant is available to qualified residents that pay property taxes to a municipality or the province in a rural area. If you pay your property taxes to a First Nation, contact the First Nation directly.
Find out what you may qualify for as a B.C. resident:
- Under 65
- Person with disabilities
- Living with a spouse or relative with disabilities
- Spouse or relative of a deceased owner
You (or your spouse) can only claim the Home Owner Grant for your principal residence each year. However, if you are married and have a written separation agreement with your spouse at the time you apply, you can each claim the Home Owner Grant for separate principal residences.
