Tax Rates Finalized
Prince George, B.C. – The tax rates for property owners in Prince George have been officially set.
As previously reported, the rate , once combined with taxes collected by the City for others, will see the average home owner required to pay $9.10043 for each one thousand dollars of taxable value. That does not include school taxes and does not take into account any grants for which a homeowner may qualify.
While Council approved the rates, Councilor Frank Everitt praised staff for being able to assist in whittling the requests down to ensure the tax levy was no higher than 3.21%.
That increase was a little higher than Councillor Albert Koehler had wanted. “It is .7% higher than I had originally envisioned” said Koehler, although expressing his disappointment at the level of the increase in the levy, Councillor Koehler joined his Council colleagues in approving the tax rates.
