The Province of British Columbia operates the Home Owner Grant program to help reduce the amount of residential property taxes that British Columbians pay. When your grant is processed, the City of Coquitlam receives the grant amount from the Province of British Columbia.
The Province of British Columbia requires that all eligible homeowners apply for a Home Owner Grant each year. This is to confirm that they still meet the eligibility requirements to receive a grant.
Taxes Paid by Mortgage Company
Your mortgage company can make payment but they cannot claim your grant on your behalf. To complete payment of your taxes, you still need to claim your Home Owner Grant.
You may claim your grant even if you are not making payment on your taxes.
Avoid penalty; claim your Home Owner Grant before the due date.
