Unpaid Utility Fees Transferred to Property Taxes
Under the Local Government Act the Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD) is required on December 31 to transfer to taxes any outstanding balances on utility accounts to the Province. This includes our water, sewer and curbside collection services. The Province, through the Surveyor of Taxes, bills these outstanding amounts to taxpayers and the 2017 statements have just been mailed.
The payments may be made on-line to the Province, through a financial institution or at a local Service BC Centre. Daily interest is charged from January 1 until the payment is made.
The CVRD is unable to accept these payments after December 31, 2016 when the outstanding balances are transferred to the Province of BC.
