BC Speculation & Vacancy Tax

The deadline to declare your property is March 31, 2020. If you received a letter in the mail, simply go online to complete the declaration.   https://www.etax.gov.bc.ca/SVT/_/

If you did not receive a letter, you will need to call to get the declaration code number and letter ID. 1-833-554-2323 toll-free

Don’t forget that ALL owners listed on the property must call and declare. For example, if you and your partner BOTH own the property, you must BOTH call or go online and declare ownership separately. 

**Reminder- THIS tax is separate from the “Vancouver Empty Homes Tax”
