Penticton council approves $613K in property tax exemptions

Non-profits and churches get their yearly tax break approved for 2022

Penticton city council gave their approval of the annual list of property tax exemptions on Oct. 19.

In total, the city gave 181 properties exemptions totalling $613,884 for 2022’s tax season, which makes up less than two per cent of the taxable allotments for properties in the city.

Among the properties, the single largest exemptions went to Good Samaritan Canada’s Hastings Avenue property, for $58,820, the Penticton Senior’s Drop-In Centre Society for $24,483 and the Penticton Art Gallery for $19,877.

The OneSky Community Resources Society and their branch OneSky Housing Society, the Penticton Kiwanis Society and the Penticton and District Society for Community Living each have collectively higher exemptions, but have the residential units they are responsible for individually listed.
