Taxes & Charges on a Representative House: Langley City Second Lowest in Region

Welcome to Langley City Sign

When most people look at their property tax and utility notice, they only see the bottom line amount owed and attribute that full cost to their municipality. While Langley City collects all property taxes in our community, about 40% of that tax is set and remitted to the School Board, Regional District, TransLink, BC Assessment Authority, and Municipality Finance Authority.

So, when you look at the complete picture of property tax (both City controlled and other), plus water and sewer utility fees, how does Langley City compare to other municipalities in Metro Vancouver?

The provincial government tracks this as part of their “Taxes & Charges on a Representative House - Schedule 704.

The following interactive chart shows that Langley City has the second lowest taxes and changes in Metro Vancouver for 2022. You can hover over the graph to get the representative charges. Langley City is in yellow.
