West Kelowna home owners face tax hike of more than 4%

April 22, 2021 - 6:00 PM

Tax revenue from new construction in West Kelowna came in higher than forecast so the 2021 tax increase will be lower than expected.

Earlier this week, city council approved a 4.05 per cent tax increase, down from the 4.75 per cent that council approved in its provisional budget.

That means the owner of an average West Kelowna home, valued at $665,000, will pay an extra $84 in taxes this year, according to a news release from the city.

The tax increase includes a one per cent levy to help pay for infrastructure.

Tax notices will be sent out in the last week of May and taxes are due July 7.
