The name and address which appear on your tax statement are in accordance with the information and advice which have been made available to the Municipal Office. If the property is in the process of a change of ownership, it is the responsibility of the person so named on the tax bill to ensure payment is made. If, however, an ownership change has since occurred, please forward the enclosed bill to the current owner or return it immediately to the Municipal Office.
 
It is important that the Municipal Office be advised of any change in ownership or mailing address in order to ensure that the tax bill is properly forwarded. It should be noted that failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse a property owner from the responsibility for payment of taxes nor relieve that owner from liability for any late payment. Tax arrears and penalties must be paid in full before payment can be applied to current taxes.

Education Property Tax Credit  

Manitoba will begin phasing out education property taxes by implementing the Education Property Tax Rebate. Property owners will receive an Education Property Tax Rebate cheque to reduce a portion of their education property taxes, enabling them to keep more of their hard earned money.  No application is required.

For 2021, owners of residential and farm properties will receive a 25 per cent rebate of the school division special levy payable. Residential properties include single dwelling units, condos and multiple unit dwellings. The Education Property Tax Rebate will be based on the school division special levy before the Education Property Tax Credit Advance.


As part of the Education Property Tax Rebate, other tax credits and rebates will be proportionally reduced as follows:
