Each year, the Municipality, Regional District, Provincial School and Police, BC Assessment Authority and other government agencies require revenue for the services they provide to the residents of Pemberton. 

Each government agency with taxing authority sets a budget for the amount of tax revenue it requires. Tax rates vary among property classifications and are calculated by dividing the budget needs of the agency by its assessment base. The appropriate tax rate is then applied to individual property assessments, and the tax levy is calculated. For further information on the where your tax dollars go, see About Property Taxes.
