If you are a mine inspection fee permit holder, you will receive a reminder notice to file a Mine Inspection Fee return for each of your mines. This reminder will provide you with the classification for each mine as Mineral or Coal Mine, or Pit or Quarry. The type of return(s) you must file and the filing frequency depends on each mine classification.

The easiest way to file and pay is using eTaxBC. If you donít want to file and pay using eTaxBC, find the updated returns on our forms page. For more information, please visit the Mine Inspection Fee page.
