Now that the Province has eased COVID-19 public health restrictions, the Municipal Office has re-opened to the public at limited capacity. If attending our offices, we ask that the following be adhered to:
  • If you are experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms, please do not attend our offices.
  • All meetings will be done by appointment only so if you are coming to speak with someone directly, please call or email to make an appointment.
  • In order to adhere to physical distancing requirements, there will be a limit of 2 people in the office at one time. 
  • It is mandatory that anyone entering the office wear a face mask.
  • Our office has social distancing stickers on the floor and we ask that you adhere to these distancing protocols.
  • Hand sanitizers are available and we request that anyone entering the office sanitize upon entry.
We request that ratepayers use remote payment options for property tax payments when possible. These options include mailing a cheque, paying through online banking or using the mail slot located in front of the Municipal Office (leave cheque in envelope with your Roll Number written on it - do not leave cash). Any tax or general inquiries should be submitted through our Service Tracker system.
 

 

Education Property Tax Rebate Cheques

The province will be mailing out education property tax rebate cheques to owners of residential, farm and commercial properties.

Property owners don’t need to apply for the rebate, as the Province will calculate the amount and automatically mail cheques before the municipal property tax due date of October 31, 2021.

The rebate this year will be 25 percent, which will increase to 50 percent in 2022. Other property owners will see a 10 percent rebate this year. The average rebate is estimated to be $1,140 per property over the next two years.

You are able to search for property assessment information (using the legal description, roll number, or street address) by clicking on the link below. 
 
 
You may also contact the Assessment Branch in Selkirk at (204) 785-5092 to inquire about your property assessment information.
 
Tax Statements

2021 Mailout Update: Tax bills are expected to be mailed out mid August for 2021.  Normally Property tax statements are issued in June of each year in accordance with the latest property ownership information provided to the Municipality. If an ownership change has occurred, please forward the property tax statement to the current owner or return it immediately to the Municipal Office. Failure to receive a bill does not excuse an owner from responsibility for payment of taxes or application of late penalties.
 
Discount Period - Changed for 2021 due to delayed financial plan hearing
CHANGE FOR 2021 - A discount of 2% is applied for early payment of current taxes up to September 15. Current taxes are payable at par from September 16 to October 31.  This discount also applies to any pre-payments made prior to the Tax Statements being mailed out.
NOTE: 2021 WILL BE THE FINAL YEAR FOR ANY DISCOUNTS ON PROPERTY TAXES.

Penalty
Taxes are due by October 31.  Penalty on arrears is calculated at 1 1/4% per month commencing on November 1. Penalties are calculated and added on the first day of each month that the taxes remain unpaid.

Tax Receipts
Tax receipts will only be issued upon request.

The Municipality accepts debit, cheque or cash for payments.  We DO NOT accept credit cards.

1. Cheques (made payable to the R.M. of St. Andrews): be sure to write the roll no. on the cheque or present tax statement when making payment so as to ensure that payment is applied to the correct property. The effective date for payment will be the date of the postmark of Canada Post. If the postmark is absent or illegible, the effective date of payment will be the actual day of receipt. To avoid late fees, mail in a post dated cheque. For your convenience, there is a mailbox located at the entrance of the Municipal Office for those who are unable to attend during office hours.
 
2. Debit: many debit cards have daily limits so please verify with your financial institution prior to attending the Municipal Office and making payment.
