Permissive Tax Exemptions
Section 224 of the Community Charter gives Council the authority to exempt certain properties from municipal property taxes. Council considers Permissive Tax Exemptions for non-profit organizations that contribute to the well being of Bowen Island residents and makes improvements to their quality of life.
Organizations thinking of applying for a Permissive Tax Exemption must successfully meet the criteria as outlined in the Permissive Tax Exemption Policy.
Applications are due by 4:30 pm on June 30 every year.
