PROPERTY REASSESSMENT 2018 (Revised)

Posted: June 1, 2017

 
PROPERTY REASSESSMENT 2018
(Revised)
 
Many residents of West St. Paul have received assessment notices for 2018. The Province of Manitoba began mailing assessment notices on May 15, 2017 and will continue to do so until June 27, 2017. Assessments are not done by the RM of West St. Paul, and the RM has no input whatsoever in the assessment.
 
Property values are assessed by the Province of Manitoba, Indigenous and Municipal Relations, Assessment Services Department. The department is responsible for the assessment of all real and personal property in the province, excluding in the City of Winnipeg. The department has 10 district offices.  
 
How frequently are properties assessed?
Properties in Manitoba are assessed every two years to ensure assessment values keep pace with changing real estate market values.
 
Who should I contact to talk about my property assessment?
An assessor will be pleased to discuss your property assessment or any other related questions you may have. Please contact the Assessment Department. The Province of Manitoba is the authority for Assessment and has all the relevant documentation and files related to your property.  The Municipal Office  can only deal with property tax issues, not assessment issues.
 
You may contact an Assessor at:
Indigenous & Municipal Relations, Assessment Services
103-235 Eaton Avenue
Selkirk, MB  R1A 0W7
Phone 204-785-5092
 
If you wish to appeal your assessment, the RM of West St. Paul will conduct a Board of Revision on November 1, 2017.
 
Your written appeal must be delivered to the Municipal Office no later than October 16, 2017.
 
The Province of Manitoba Assessment Services will be conducting an Open House for the residents of West St. Paul on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 from 3:00pm until 7:00pm at the Municipal Office.  Assessors will be in attendance to answer your questions and concerns.
