Important tips to Penticton Indian Band Taxpayers:

If you see something incorrect on your Assessment Notice please verify records with the Indian Land Registry System at AANDC.  You may also want to contact BC Assessment with your changes.

We also ask that you send a copy of the following information to the PIB Property Taxation Office as well as.  This is so that we can keep your files as up to date as we can and so that we can have verification of any changes to your folio.

If you are paying online or by telephone, we ask that you please contact the property taxation office and let us know your name, folio number, amount being paid and date payment is made.  This ensures that the payments are being applied to correct folio and accounts are being properly updated.
It’s important that both the RBC bank and the Penticton Indian Band Property Taxation Department have a name and folio number attached each payment.
