Reminder: Vancouver Empty Homes Tax declaration due February 2

Vancouver homeowners are reminded to file their Empty Homes Tax declaration for the 2023 year by February 2, 2024. Failure to file the declaration by the deadline will result in the subject property being deemed to have been vacant in 2023 and subject to the 3% tax (as well as incur a $250 fine). If the deadline is missed, homeowners may be able to late-file their declaration and reverse the tax, though with the payment of an additional penalty.
