A quick property tax primer

The Village of Nakusp provides programs and services, and manages parks, roads, infrastructure and facilities on behalf of the community. The Village must balance municipal revenues with expenditures and reserve transfers to pay for municipal services and to save for future expenses.

Each year council reviews the priorities and goals for the upcoming year and directs staff to prepare a comprehensive Five-Year Financial Plan, as required by the Community Charter.  It is from the Five-Year Financial Plan that tax rates are calculated, tax rate bylaws are adopted, and property tax notices are sent to property owners for payment.
