Local property tax late penalties, deadlines different amid pandemic

Province also provides deferrment plan for those who qualify

Property tax payment is a bit different in Agassiz-Harrison this year.

The District of Kent recently reminded the public that the deadline for property tax payment is July 15. There will be a one per cent late payment charge added to any balance after that date. However, the district council approved the delay of the second, nine per cent late payment charge from July 31 to October 31.

While the deadline for property tax payments in Harrison Hot Springs has already elapsed on July 2, the village has made special accommodations in light of the pandemic. Any late payment penalties incurred for residents of Harrison do not have to be paid until October 1, 2020.
