Enderby Has Second-Lowest Business Tax Multiple in North Okanagan and Columbia-Shuswap

Businesses typically pay more property taxes per $1000 of assessed land value than residential property. This difference describes the proportional share of the tax burden borne by business. A lower business class tax multiple is one of several factors that shows how “business-friendly” a community is.

In comparing 2013 taxes for municipalities across the North Okanagan and Columbia-Shuswap, Enderby is second only to Lumby in its efforts to maintain a business-friendly tax multiple.
