Before filing a complaint (appeal), use
Assessment search to review your assessment and sales of similar properties to ensure your assessment is accurate. If you still have concerns, we encourage you to Contact us before submitting an official Notice of Complaint (Appeal). Please note that the deadline to file a Notice of Complaint (Appeal) is January 31, 2023 - this deadline has now passed.
Many concerns can be resolved through discussion with our staff outside of the formal complaint and appeal process. If you are still not satisfied after discussing your concern with us, you may use the complaint and appeal process to have your assessment independently reviewed.
Please note: BCA Office Front Counters are currently closed to the public to ensure the health and safety of our customers and staff. We are happy to provide assistance by phone (1-866-valueBC), or electronically, by using our
