Returned Payment Fee:

If the bank does not honour your cheque or T.I.P.P. payment and returns it to us, there will be a service charge added to your tax account as outlined in the City of Winnipeg Fees and Charges Schedule. In addition, if you miss the payment deadline date because of a returned cheque, the late penalty charge will apply.

Other Administrative Charges:

There is no TIPP application fee for this service if you start the plan on January 1. However, if you join TIPP after January 1, a one-time 2% late payment fee will be applied on the missed instalment payments. The missed instalments together with the late payment fee can either be paid at the time of application or be included in the remaining instalment payments for the year.

An administrative charge will be applied in cases where additional amounts are added to the property tax account for collection purposes. These additional amounts may include, but are not limited to, unpaid water bills, noxious weed and board-up charges.
