Property Taxation on Reserve

The Okanagan Indian Band has been looking at the issue of implementing property taxation on reserve for over 30 years, the last time was in 2008. Since 2008, many things have changed. Council wants to make sure that OKIB members have accurate information about property taxation so you can give guidance as to how to proceed. The goal of this page is to paint a clear and accurate picture of the issues around introducing property taxation on reserve.
