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 2018 residential mill rate for the rural properties in the municipality is 27.701.  The residential mill rate for the LUD of Tyndall-Garson in 2018 is 24.067.  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 2018 and 2019 property taxes using market values as of April 1, 2016.  Reassessment notices are mailed the year before new assessment values are to take effect.  2018 is a reassessment year and the notices had been sent by the Selkirk Assessment Branch in the summer of 2017.  The deadline for property owners to appeal their 2018 assessments has passed.

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 in the amount of $700.00.  To receive the tax credit advance, you must be living in that residence as of January 1st, 2018.  If you have been living at your primary residence since January 1st, 2018 or earlier and have NOT received the rebate on your tax bill, you will need to apply for the rebate when you do your 2018 personal income tax.  There are forms that can be completed at our office or available HERE to apply for the rebate for the 2019 tax year.

Seniors Tax Rebate

Property owners 65 years or older are eligible for a further property tax rebate of up to $470.00 in 2018 if your income is less than $63,500.00.  The 2018 rebate can be claimed when you file your 2018 income tax return in the spring of 2019.  This means that a separate application for the Rebate is not 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, 2017);
-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.  If you have applied last year, you will automatically receive an application form in the mail.  Forms will be made available at the office once they are released by the Province of Manitoba.  The deadline for the 2017 rebate was March 31st, 2018 and has closed for the 2017 year.
