What is the Services Levy?

The services levy is like the municipal portion of property taxes for residential properties on UBC’s campus. Property owners on UBC’s campus pay a Rural Tax to the Province of British Columbia and the Services Levy to UBC. The two added together are the same as the City of Vancouver municipal tax due on a property with the same assessed value. 

  • You receive two invoices—Rural Tax invoice from the province and Services levy invoice from UBC—but are not paying taxes twice.
  • Please do not send your payment of the Rural Property Tax to UBC.  Call the Rural Property Tax office at 1-250-387-0555 or toll free in Vancouver at 604-660-2421 or email at RuralTax@gov.bc.ca for its payment information.
