If there is an outstanding balance for over 24 months, your roll number will be registered with Tax Sale and heavier fines will be charged to your account until all the fees are paid.

Transferring land ownership?

If you have sold your property or transferred ownership, the remaining owing property taxes stay with the property. Talk to your lawyer about transferring the remaining taxes owing to the new owners.

Education Property Tax rebate

Property owners in Manitoba will see a continuation in the reduction of a portion of their education property taxes in the form of an Education Property Tax Rebate. The rebate is calculated based on the following rules:

  • Owners of residential and farm properties will receive a 37.5% rebate of the school division special levy payable in 2022. Please note that the municipal property tax bill will not be reduced to reflect this reduction. The Province of Manitoba will be issuing a rebate cheque directly to the property owner.
  • Other property owners (such as commercial, industrial, institutional, railways, pipelines and designated recreational) will receive a 10% rebate of their education property taxes payable in 2022. Please note that the municipal property tax bill will not be reduced to reflect this reduction. The Province of Manitoba will be issuing a rebate cheque directly to the property owner.
  • The Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit Advance will be reduced by 16.67% in 2022. This change will appear on the 2022 municipal property tax bill.

Sample School Tax Calculation Comparison for Residential Property:

  2021 2022 Change
