Near the completion of a real estate transaction, agents for either the purchaser or seller of a property may submit a Tax Search Request to obtain information about the property tax status prior to completing the transaction.
While this information can be provided verbally to property owners free of charge, the property transaction process usually requires an indication of the property tax status on the exact date of closing, and a Tax Search Request provides the necessary due diligence to ensure the transaction occurs without any undue charges imposed onto either party.
The cost for processing a Tax Search Request is $30.00, payable within 30 days of the completed Tax Search.
You can begin the process by either visiting the Village Office to obtain a submission form or by downloading the form below. You will need to install the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader (available free) to use this file.
This form is fillable .pdf and can be saved once completed. You can submit your completed form by emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org, by faxing a copy to (250) 499-5477 or by mailing or dropping a copy off at the Village Office. Please ensure you provide your current contact information so you can be notified about any issues with your request and contacted once your tax search has been processed.
For general inquiries about the Tax Search Request process, please contact the Village Office at (250) 499-2711.
