What We Do

Property Assessment & Tax Appeals for the Corporate, Industrial & Investment Sectors.
Are you overpaying your commercial and/or residential property taxes?
Do you know?

Your business is important to you. Your property tax assessment is key. We stay on top of all the changing variables. Our review process means your assessment gets individual attention. It is not lumped in with hundreds of others with similar criteria. An annual review will help ensure that you are not overpaying. At™ we provide property tax assessment reviews & appeals.

Your BC assessment is unique to your property.

We know how to:

  • read your assessment notice
  • review your BC assessment
  • have any errors corrected

Business tax rates are higher!

Businesses have different assessment variables than homes. Business tax rates are higher. An error in the assessor's estimated market value of your property will be compounded by the higher business tax rate. This may mean thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars paid in extra taxes year after year. That affects YOUR bottom line. Use our™ service to be sure your business property is accurately assessed.

Appeal or Lose - It is just that important!

If you fail to appeal, the city will keep your property tax overpayment! Incredible, but true. The process is designed to assist the city, not you! You don't have to stand alone. Now, you can even the playing field with our assessment review and appeal service.

It's your business!

We make it simple. It's your business: do not risk an overassessment. We offer a free consultation service.

Why overpay?

Don't let your BC assessment value be too high. Ensure that your BC market value assessment is a Be Correct Assessment™.

How it works

Every January marks the arrival of your BC assessment notice from the provincial government's assessment offices (the British Columbia Assessment Authority). This assessment is based on their estimated value of your property. It involves specific factors, criteria and policies. If any of these are in error, you will pay too much property tax. If you have not filed an appeal, the city will overtax you and attempt to keep the overcharge. Even if you later establish you have been overcharged - without an appeal the city will keep your money!"


Why it matters

Today's business must be leaner. Every dollar counts. Property taxes represent one of your highest expense items. Taxes are based on the province's annual assessed value of your property and this assessment is prone to error. If your assessment is too high, your taxes will be too high.

Excess property taxes come straight off your bottom line. By reviewing your assessment, we help protect your bottom line.

Fighting city hall?

You don't always have to "fight'" city hall. It is often possible to convince them that you have a good case.

That's what M.C. Lount & Associates Ltd. does so well. We will review the assessment with you and identify the best course of action. If the assessment goes to a hearing at the Review Panel or Appeal Board, we will represent you at these hearings.

Whether you own commercial or residential property it may be worth your while to investigate if you are paying too much property tax.
