Permissive Tax Exemption
PERMISSIVE TAX EXEMPTION
A permissive tax exemption is available for qualifying Peachland based, registered not-for-profit organizations using property for municipal, recreational, religious, cultural or charitable purposes. The deadline to apply for or renew 2021 permissive tax exemptions for 2022 is August 30, 2021.
Places of Worship, Private Schools and Hospitals
Places of worship, private schools and hospitals are required to complete the Places of Worship, Private Schools and Hospitals Application every five years. The District of Peachland will administer these applications on a five year cycle. If the application is approved, the organization is exempt for the number of years remaining in the cycle.
Not-for-profit organizations must complete a Not-for-Profit Comprehensive Application every five years. If the application is approved, the organization will then be required to submit a Not-for-Profit Renewal Application each year until the five year cycle is completed. The renewal application confirms that ownership and use of property has not changed and will be reviewed and approved before a permissive tax exemption is granted for the following year.
Five Year Cycle
At the end of the five year cycle all organizations must complete an application for the next five years. It is the organization's responsibility to notify the District of Peachland of any changes in property ownership and use of the property.
