Property Tax Exemptions are available to District of Lillooet-based organizations that are registered as a not-for-profit organization, and using property for municipal, recreational, religious, cultural, or charitable purposes.

To be eligible for a Permissive Tax Exemption, an organization must meet the requirements under section 224 of the Community Charter.

Council must adopt a bylaw on or before October 31st of the current year to provide the property tax exemptions in the following calendar year.

Properties included in the Permissive Tax Exemption Bylaw, are required to reapply each year to be considered for an exemption.

Public notice of the application period was placed on the District's website and social media on June 11, 2020. Letters were sent the same day to property owners who received an exemption last year reminding them of the need to reapply if they were seeking another exemption.

It is the organization’s responsibility to notify the District of any changes in
property ownership and/or property use.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure they receive and complete the application and return it to the District by the application due date.

Permissive Tax Exemption Bylaw No. 2020-023 lists the properties or portions of properties that are tax exempt in an attached schedule.
