Property Tax Information
The amount of taxes indicated on the statement represents the amount due for the entire calendar year (January 1 to December 31, 2019). Payment must be receipted in the Town office on or before September 30, 2019 by 5:00 p.m. All taxes remaining subsequently unpaid are subject by law to a penalty of 1.25% per month (compounded annually).
2019 Taxes: The funds required to cover the cost of operating the Town will be identified in the annual financial plan (budget), generally set in March or April of the tax year.
2019 Mill Rates: The 2019 Mill rates have not been set yet. An open house, to view and discuss the 2019 Financial Plan, was held on January 22, 2019, click HERE for details.
The portioned assessed value of a property divided by 1000 multiplied by the mill rate determines the amount of taxes payable on each property. If you have questions regarding taxes and mill rates, please call the Town office at 388-4600 Ext. 104. Copies of the financial plan (budget) are available at the Town office and online HERE.
If a change of ownership has occurred, please return the tax statement to the Town office so that it may be redirected.

ATTENTION New home owners
Your new home may not have the Education Property Tax Credit Advance (EPTCA) on your bill. Newly built homes and homes that were previously used as rental properties will not have the EPTCA automatically deducted from the bill. Check your bill to ensure that you are receiving the credit.
If you are not already receiving the credit you will need to contact the Town office for an application form to apply. Applications are accepted for the current year only up until the tax bills are printed (approx. May 1), after which your application will be for the following year. If you have missed the application deadline for the current year, you may apply for the credit on your personal income tax at the end of the year, on the Manitoba Tax Credits form.
Please note that the EPTCA is a credit provided by the Province of Manitoba, not the Town of Niverville.
