Taxes & Utilities

We're listening!

Stay tuned for exciting new enhancements to our services in the coming months. The Finance Department has been listening closely to your feedback and is working on ways to deliver more services online. Expect to see an announcement later in the year.


As in all municipalities, property taxes and utilities are the primary source of funding for the District of Squamish. Under the Community Charter, municipalities may recover part or all of the cost of providing services by levying taxes against properties. District staff and Council work diligently to ensure core services are maintained while supporting other important initiatives and service improvements the community wants and needs. It is of primary importance to us that residents receive good value for their tax dollar. Learn more about the 2016 budget.
