YOU DO NOT NEED TO REGISTER TO CLAIM eHOG. District of Highlands' property owners who qualify for the Provincial Home Owner Grant can now claim the grant electronically (eHOG). -- please read this entire section before skipping to HOG.
You will require the ACCESS code/PIN and Roll# from the upper right corner of your Property Tax Notice which is mailed annually at the end of May. The PIN is printed only on the Original tax notice. If you have a 'reprinted' tax notice and the PIN does note show, you will need to call our office (250) 474-1773 to request a letter be sent to your home address or bring in ID.
School District (SD) listed as part of your Roll Number, also known as the Jurisdiction Number:
SD#61=361, SD#62=362, SD#63=363
Jurisdiction Number: 361, 362 or 363
Roll Number: 15999.999 (INCLUDE decimal) DO NOT repeat jurisdiction# from tab above!!
ACCESS code/PIN: XXXX (4-Digit from your Home Owner Grant tax notice)
Claimants eligible for the additional grant for 65 years of age and over will need to provide a valid date of birth.
The Home Owner Grant (HOG) claim due date is the same as the property tax due date. The Home Owner Grant amount ($570 or $845) makes up part of the gross taxes, therefore when the HOG is not claimed, this amount is also subject to penalties.
The eHOG is only available through this portal until midnight December 31 of the current year. To claim LAST YEAR's Home Owner Grant (Retro HOG Application) or for other options if you do not want to claim electronically, please go to the our website at www.highlands.ca then choose the PROPERTY TAX tab on the left, then HOME OWNER GRANTS section.
Remember the HOG must be claimed every year!
IMPORTANT to avoid late penalties: After submitting the HOG application you should receive a confirmation of submission via email which you will provide when claiming your HOG below. Please print this confirmation for your records; this is your ONLY proof that you claimed the HOG before the due date. Note that all grants are subject to review before a claim is approved or denied, according to regulations of the Home Owner Grant Act. A penalty WILL NOT BE REversed without this confirmation.
