Legal & Taxation

The Taxation and Legal Department’s objectives are to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of administration (accountability, capacity, collaboration, communication, recognition); ensure consistent tax collection; and enhance relationships.

What We Do
The Taxation office performs the duties required under MIB’s Property Assessment and Taxation bylaws and any other duties as required, effectively implementing and administering these bylaws and other bylaws of the Band, when so directed by Council. In effect, we send tax notices to leaseholders on-reserve and ensure consistent collection of all property taxes owed.  Our General Counsel provides advice to the Musqueam Indian Band Council and the Administration, as required.
