Tax Statement Information
The property tax statements for 2020 have been mailed. If you haven’t received one, you are responsible to call 204-388-4600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get a copy. Please note that it takes up to 3 months for the Town to receive information on title changes from the Land Titles office. Failure to receive a bill does not excuse an owner from payment of the account.
The amount of taxes indicated on the statement represents the amount due for the entire calendar year (January 1 to December 31, 2020). Payment must be received in the Town office on or before September 30, 2020 by 5:00 p.m. All taxes remaining subsequently unpaid are subject by law to a penalty of 1.25% per month (compounded annually).
2020 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.

Local Improvement Levies: Check your tax statement, call the Town office, or email email@example.com to determine if your property is subject to an LID Levy.

Note: for 2020, due to a processing error, the waste collection charge will be a separate invoice and included with the tax statement, it will be due by September 30, 2020 by 5:00 p.m.
Education Property Tax Credit
The Education Property Tax Credit Advance (EPTCA) is a credit provided by the Province of Manitoba, not the Town of Niverville. Beginning in 2021, the Province of Manitoba will be making changes to the EPTCA. More information on this can be found on the Province of Manitoba website:
For New Homeowners, 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 (Manitoba Tax Credits form) at the end of the year.
