Property owners in Kelowna can expect to receive their 2023 tax notices in the mail soon.

Those registered with a city property account have already received their notices by email.

This year’s notice includes a tax increase of 3.78 per cent, which translates to an additional $7.20 a month, for the city portion on an average residential property tax bill.

Payments must be physically received by the city, or electronically processed by third-party financial institutions, by Tuesday, July 4 to avoid a legislated 10 per cent late payment penalty.

Banks and credit card companies may take up to three business days to process payments. Monday, July 3 is a statutory holiday so the city is recommending making payments early.

The city is also accepting payment by credit card and a 2.3 per cent transaction fee will be applied to payment.

Eligible property owners are responsible for applying annually for the provincial Home Owner Grant (HOG) before the July 4 deadline, as it is considered a form of payment.

More information can be found on the provincial government website.
