Property taxation payment deadline extended for some regional district residents

Government says system error meant some notices were not being sent out

Some taxpayers in the regional district will have an extended payment deadline due to some 2015 property taxation notices not being sent out because of a system error.

The provincial government said June 25 that one of the affected areas is Jurisdiction 792 – Electoral Area A of the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine, which is the Nass Valley and Meziadin.

New tax notices with an extended payment deadline of 38 days from the date of issue are being sent out to these taxpayers, said a government release.

The same extension will be granted to these taxpayers for Home Owner Grant applications.

Affected taxpayers will not be subject to a late payment penalty if they pay their property taxes by the extended deadline.
