Property Tax Estimator

2022 Residential Property Tax Estimator

NOTE: This provides an estimate only. In 2022, most property owners will see a substantial increase in assessed values. If your property assessment increase (or decrease) is close to the City average, the tax estimate is not greatly affected by your assessment change. If the percentage increase in your assessment is greater than the average, your property taxes will reflect an increase greater than the average. If the percentage increase in your assessment is less than the average, your property taxes will reflect an increase less than the average.

The property tax estimator uses a 5% increase for residential municipal taxes collected by the City. The tax increase for all other agencies (see the blue section in this sample property tax notice) is estimated at 5% for 2022. We are using a 5% estimate to reflect  the provisional budget increase approved by Council. A final rate will not be known until May 15, 2022.

Your taxes are also affected by the change in your home's assessed value. Visit the BC Assessment website for more details:

The best way to compare property tax rates in Kamloops to those in other cities is to first find out what the representative (average) home price is in each community and then compare taxes on those homes. Two homes each valued at $400k but in communities with different average homes prices may look vastly different. Comparing their tax amounts would not be reflective of the true state of property tax rates in either community. Representative home values for cities throughout BC can be found in Schedule 704 on the BC Government Website.
