The Property Tax Due Date is 4:30 pm on the last business day of July each year. Late payments will receive a 10% penalty on any outstanding balance – including any unclaimed Provincial Home Owner Grant. Credit for the home owner grant is not automatic.
HOME OWNER GRANT PROGRAM
Credit for the home owner grant is not automatic. If eligible, home owner grant application forms must be completed in full, signed and received at the Village Office by the tax due date. Payment is not required at the time of making application for the grant, however, outstanding amounts will be subject to the late penalty charge. If your application requires supporting documentation, please submit it along with your application. Village of Cache Creek residents eligible for the Home Owner Grant deduction can claim their grant at anytime through out the year. This will be particularly advantageous for home owners who have set up automatic withdrawals, use online banking, have their mortgage company making tax payments or will be out of the country for a short period of time.
