Frequently Asked Questions

I recently built a new home and have only received a property tax bill for the land. When can I expect a bill for the house?

New homes are typically sent a supplementary tax bill. Supplementary tax bills are mailed out the first week of October and due the last business day in December. Depending on the completion date of your home and/or if the home has been assessed, you may receive a tax bill for both the previous and current year.

I received a tax bill for a property I no longer own. What should I do?

If you no longer own the property, please forward the tax notice to the current owner or advise the City of Steinbach.

Is the Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit automatically applied?

Properties that are not receiving the education tax credit must apply. To qualify, the property must be your principal residence; a single-dwelling unit; you must have occupied it as of January 1st; and you must not be receiving the credit for another residence. The deadline to apply for 2016 has passed. You may claim the Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit on your 2016 income tax return.  2017 applications will be available at the end of June. 

What period does my tax bill cover?

City of Steinbach tax bills cover the calendar year (January 1 - December 31).

I recently purchased a property and never received a property tax bill. Am I responsible for the property taxes?

New property owners are responsible for payment of property taxes whether or not they received a notice. Any property owner who does not receive a tax statement should contact the City Tax Clerk.

*Failure to receive a tax notice is not sufficient reason for late payment or non-payment; penalties will be applied.

I am paying for my property taxes through my mortgage. How do I know that my bank / mortgage company received notification of the amount owing?

If your property tax account shows a recorded interest from your bank / mortgage company, they are notified of amounts owing in July.

Are receipts automatically mailed?

Receipts are not mailed out, as your processed cheque can serve as the receipt. If you require a receipt, please contact the City.

Payment Options

Property taxes can be paid in-person at City Hall at 225 Reimer Avenue (there is also a 24 hour drop box), by mail, through the TIPP Program and online. Payment methods include cash (in-person) and one-time payment and post-dated cheques. The City does NOT accept payment by Credit Card.

Online Banking

When adding City of Steinbach as a payee, search “Steinbach”, select the Taxes option. Vendors are normally listed as ‘Steinbach,City Business/Realty Taxes’ or ‘Steinbach (City of) Taxes.’ Your account number is your roll number. Enter all digits of the roll number (including zeros), except for the 451. Do not enter the decimal (i.e. enter 0001234000 for roll no. 451 0001234.000). To ensure your payment is received in time, and to avoid penalty, please be aware of the processing times required by your financial institution.

TIPP

The Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) is a payment plan that allows taxpayers to make monthly payments for property taxes rather than a single annual payment in September. Monthly payments are automatically withdrawn from your chequing account at your financial institution. Your payment is calculated by dividing your most recent annual tax levy or an estimate of your current year tax levy into twelve (12) installment payments.

How does TIPP work?

Withdrawals occur on the first business day of each month beginning in January, and continue until December. Written authorization must be received before the withdrawals will begin. The City of Steinbach does not charge interest or service fees for the TIPP program; however, normal bank service charges may apply.
