2014 Assessment Information
The 2014 Property Assessment Roll has been delivered.
This means that more than 200,000 property owners in the City of Winnipeg were mailed a notice advising them of the value of their property as at the reference date of April 1, 2012. This value will be used in the calculation of taxes in 2014.
It is important to note that although this value will be used to calculate taxes in 2014 it is too early to determine what the taxes will be as the 2014 tax rates have yet to be set by City Council, the Province of Manitoba or the various school divisions. Please keep in mind that a change in market value of your property does not necessarily result in a similar proportionate change to your property taxes.
