“Most homes in the Central Okanagan region are remaining stable in value compared to last year's assessment roll,” said Tracy Wall, Deputy Assessor. “Most home owners in the Central Okanagan can expect modest changes in the -5% to +5% range.”
Overall, the Central Okanagan‟ Assessment Roll decreased from $40,748,380,318 last year to $40,599,516,028 this year. The 2013 assessment roll includes $280,572,573 for subdivisions, rezoning and new construction.

“Property owners who feel that their property assessment does not reflect market value as of July 1, 2012 or see incorrect information on their notice should contact our office as indicated on their notice as soon as possible in January,” said Wall.
“If a property owner is still concerned about their assessment after speaking to one of our appraisers, they may submit a Notice of Complaint (Appeal) by January 31, for an independent review by a Property Assessment Review Panel,” added Wall.
