BC Assessment Information
Assessment information is the product that is provided to taxing authorities, like the government, which contains all the information of individual assessments found within that jurisdiction. This information includes elements like classification and value. The total value of all real estate on the annual provincial assessment is more than $1.3 trillion. This value allows local and provincial authorities to finance communities with the money of property tax revenue.
According to the “Assessment Act”, properties must assessed as of July 1st every year. BC Assessment maintains real property assessment by doing this.

As it explains above, they elaborate assessment notices that include information about the assessment of a property. More than two million assessment notices mailed every year to property owners in the province.
Many people have the misconception that if there is a significant change in the assessment value of their properties, there will also be a significant change in their property taxes. However, for taxes, the most major aspect is not how you’re individual assessed valued changed, but how your assessed value has changed when compared to the average change for the property of your class in you taxing jurisdiction or municipality.
