Every owner of residential property in Vancouver is required to submit a property status declaration each year to determine if their property is subject to the Empty Homes Tax.
Failure to declare by February 2, 2018, will result in your property being deemed vacant and subject to a tax of 1% of its assessed taxable value.
This declaration is for the year:
- Beginning: January 1, 2017
- Ending: December 31, 2017
The information you provide on your declaration will determine if your property is subject to the Empty Homes Tax for this period.
