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 2016 residential mill rate for the rural properties in the municipality is 27.601.  The residential mill rate for the LUD of Tyndall-Garson in 2016 is 23.157.  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 will be sent by the Selkirk Assessment Branch in the summer of 2017.

If you have any questions or concerns about the assessed value of your property, please contact the Selkirk Assessment Branch at 204-785-5092.

Rebates

EPTCA

Property owners are eligible for an Education Property Tax Credit Advance on the property that is considered their primary residence.  The deadline for application was November 15th, 2016.  If you have missed the deadline, you can apply for the tax credit through your income tax.

Seniors Tax Rebate

Property owners 65 years or older are eligible for a further property tax rebate of up to $470.00 in 2016.  2016 Rebate will be claimed when you file your 2016 income tax return in the spring of 2017.  This means that a separate application for the Rebate is no longer necessary.  It also means that in future years, you will be able to make retroactive claims for up to three years, but no further back than the 2016 Rebate.

To be eligible for the Seniors School Tax Rebate, you or your spouse/common-law partner must:

-be 65 years of age or older by the end of the year (December 31st, 2016);
-own your home or be liable for paying the school taxes on your principle residence;
-live in your home, and
-be residents of Manitoba

Farmland School Tax Rebate

Owners of farm classified property are eligible for a percentage of their taxes for farm land only to be refunded by the Government of Manitoba.  Each year an application form must be completed and submitted to the Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation in their area.  The deadline for the 2016 rebate is March 31st, 2017.  The nearest office is located in Beausejour at:

Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation
