Understanding Your Property Taxes

Your Property Taxes are due on Tuesday, July 3, 2018. Login to MyProperty Account for your amount due.

Property taxes are one of the ways the City of Surrey collects revenue to pay for City services. The amount you pay is based on the funds Surrey needs to provide City services each year and your property assessment.

These services include:

  • public safety and city infrastructure,
  • road maintenance and waste collection,
  • parks and recreation facilities and
  • emergency and fire services.

Learn more about where your tax dollars went in 2017's Report to Citizens.

Property Assessment

Your yearly property assessment is done by BC Assessment. Your property notice is sent out out at the beginning of the year by BC Assessment. The notice shows you the assessed value of your property as of July 1 of the previous year. Learn more about property assessment.

Visit the BC Assessment website for complete details on key assessment dates you need to know.

You can also view assessment, legal description, tax and utility levy information related to properties located in the city online.
