Payment Frequently Asked Questions

When are your taxes due?

Your tax statement states the “due date”, but it is usually the last working day of May for Business Tax and the last working day of June for Property tax.

Is there any reason to pay early?

Yes. If you pay your business and/or property taxes in January or February, you get a small discount – but the discount decreases the longer you wait. The annual discount rate is revised annually based on the current market trends.

What happens if your taxes are late?

For 2021, the due date remains June 30th for Property Taxes and May 31st for Business Taxes, however to provide some assistance to owners that may need it, City Council has approved an option to defer tax payments without penalty for a period of three months from the respective due dates. Please see the current penalty rate structure for details.

If you have not received your tax bill, you must still pay your taxes by either the due date or the deferred dates of September 30, 2021 for Property Taxes or August 31, 2021 for Business taxes. After those dates, penalties will be applied at the prevailing rates, as reflected on the current penalty rate structure.

Please notify the City’s Assessment and Taxation Department if you have not received a tax bill by contacting 311 or toll free toll free 1-877-311-4974.

You may also email 311@winnipeg.ca

What if your taxes go into arrears?

If you owe back taxes, your payment goes to pay your arrears and penalties before this year’s taxes.

If your property taxes are not paid for more than two years, the City has a legal right to start processing your property toward a tax sale. During this process taxes, penalties and fees you owe keep accumulating. Very few properties are actually sold for taxes unless they are worth less than the taxes and fees owed.

If your business taxes are not paid on or before the due date the City will start the collection process as per The City of Winnipeg Charter and may include the issuance of a distress warrant.
