As of 2012, Splatsin is one of 164 taxing First Nations in B.C. Our property tax system enables us to issue tax notices and collect property taxes on land within our reserves, similar to that of other municipalities. From this tax revenue, we can provide services and improved infrastructure to our community and our taxpayers. This allows us as a First Nation to attract investors and achieve further economic growth.
Notice: tax deadlines have been extended this year as a courtesy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
