The Property Tax Due Date was 4:30 p.m. on Monday, July 4, 2017.  Late Payments received a 10% penalty on any outstanding balance - including any unclaimed Provincial Home Owner Grant.  Post Marks are not accepted, payments MUST be received in our office on or before the due date.

The District of Lillooet has no authority to waive or modify the penalty amounts levied on overdue property taxes; it is a requirement of the Local Government Act that these penalties be added.

Utility fees are billed seperately from property taxes. Utility Notices were mailed at the end of March and were due on June 5, 2017. Any outstanding utility fees as of December 31, 2017 will transfer to property taxes in arrears and will accrue daily interest charges.
