Your property taxes will increase by a minimum of 3.6% this year if you live in Kelowna. I guarantee it :up:

No, they will not necessarily. You cannot guarantee it.

Mine up 11% better than last year when it jumped 24%. And since taxes based on assessment more money for the City.
Neighbours place went higher than mine.. then down the block bascially no change at all.

Up 18 %. It has gone up by 47 % points since 2014. Of course it is compounded each year so the total is around 50%.

Can anyone tell me in concrete evidence how the property tax amount is calculate.
does anyone have the equation?
Seems to me its simple math that you would pay a certain percentage of your bc assessment.
which would make me think that if your assessment goes up so do your taxes.
please prove me wrong. everytime my assessment goes up so does may taxes which contradicts what some are saying
You can say whatever you please,
as long as the Mods agree

The equation is: taxes = millrate x assessed value. Look at last year's tax notice to see the millrates. The governments (provincial and municipal) know exactly how much money they need/budget, so millrates are adjusted accordingly once they know the total assessed values.

Take the total value of the assessments and divide it into how much money the gov't wants/needs and that would be the mil rate. So each owner pays their portion depended on their property value. (I might be wrong but that's basically how it works)
My Wife gives me very sound advice...99% sound and 1% advice!

I read an article that explained it simply but can no longer find it. If I recall correctly it goes like this...

BC Assessment values every property in BC once a year with a current estimate of its value based on numerous factors.

Meanwhile, our city council (and all other municipalities) develop a budget of what funds they need to operate the City for the year. Say for simplicity it's 10 million.

If they need 10 million, they divide that amount by all the assessments in the city and collect a proportional amount of tax from each.

Generally, if all property assessments go up a similar amount in your neighbourhood, it's not likely your taxes will shoot up.

And... just because the City budget goes up 4%, it doesn't mean we will all pay 4% more in taxes. New builds, new commercial properties and some increased assessments in some neighbourhoods (did you just get a new park in your neighbourhood or a new bike path - your assessment may have gone up because your property is suddenly more attractive...) all pay for part of the increase.

I hope that's as I remember the article but anyone feel free to correct me if I haven't explained it right.

You should have paid attention in school. The mill rate is a mutiplier that takes your total taxed value from the the hundreds of thousands down to thousands of dollars and is intended to fairly distribute the taxes according to property value.
If the city says taxes are up 3%, that is what you will see on your tax bill. The city will determine the mill rate each year in accordance with the total tax value of all the properties in the city divided by how much they need for taxes.
Waste not
