How Are My Taxes Determined?

Your property taxes are the product of your portioned assessment and the school and municipal mill rates.  Portioned assessment represents the portion of the assessed value of your property that is subject to taxation.

Portioned Assessment  X  (Municipal + School mill rates)  =  Property Tax
1000

Mill Rate

The mill rate is determined by a series of calculations.  Council plans their budget for the fiscal year, deciding which projects they wish to see completed.  Once they have determined how much it will cost to complete the projects and provide services for the municipality, they subtract the revenue and grants they will take in and divide the remainder by the total assessment of the municipality’s land and buildings.

The 2017 residential mill rate for the rural properties in the municipality is 28.218.  The residential mill rate for the LUD of Tyndall-Garson in 2017 is 23.709.  The mill rate differs between the rural part of the municipality and the LUD of Tyndall-Garson largely from the transportation costs to maintain roadways in each part of the municipality.  Gravel roads are more difficult to maintain than paved streets, as they often require more repairs.  There are also several more miles of gravel roads than paved streets in the whole municipality.

Property Assessment

All properties within the boundaries of the RM of Brokenhead are assessed by the Province of Manitoba Assessment Branch in Selkirk.

Properties are assessed after completion of building a new dwelling or structure in which a building permit was required.  The Province has also adopted a policy in which every property in Manitoba is reassessed every two years to keep assessments more current with the housing market.  All properties were reassessed for the 2016 and 2017 property taxes using market values as of April 1, 2014.  Reassessment notices are mailed the year before new assessment values are to take effect.  The next reassessment year is 2018 and the notices have been sent by the Selkirk Assessment Branch in the summer of 2017.  Property owners may appeal their 2018 assessments.  Written appeals must be received by the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead no later than October 10th, 2017 for it to be considered in the Board of Revision taking place October 25th, 2017.
