Taxes

Current taxes are due Friday, September 27, 2024. No discount is offered for early payment.

Tax statements are mailed out a minimum of 30 days prior to the due date each year.

Penalties of 1.25% per month will be added to the outstanding taxes October 1st and on the first day of each month thereafter, until paid.

Pursuant to the Municipal Act, properties with two years of unpaid taxes and penalties will be subject to Tax Sale proceedings. 

Failure to receive a bill DOES NOT excuse an owner from responsibility for payment of taxes, including any late payment fees applied.

Payment may be made in person, online or by mail. Payments may be made via cash, cheques, money orders, debit (ensure daily withdrawal limit covers remittance), telebanking and web banking (E-Transfers are not accepted). When making payments online, please include all numbers (including zeroes) to ensure payment is applied correctly.

Cheques and money orders should be made payable to the R.M. of Cartier. Postdated cheques dated for the due date will be accepted and a night deposit box located outside of the Municipal Office is available for after hour payments. DO NOT PUT CASH IN THE NIGHT DEPOSIT BOX.

** Note - most financial institutions take 2-4 business days to process online payments. Mailed in payments must arrive before or by the due date. Penalties will be applied if the payment is not received by the due date. The RM of Cartier is not liable for any payment delays with Canada Post or financial institutions.

Supplementary taxes will be issued to properties that have had changes in assessment due to consolidation or subdivision of land, new construction, renovations, or demolitions which were not reflected on the annual tax bill and will be mailed out in September. Supplementary taxes are due by December 31st.

Receipts are issued by request only. If requiring a copy of a receipt, there is a printing charge of $0.50 per page for paper copies per year for tax years 2023 and prior. 

If you are moving, please provide us with your new complete mailing address and phone number and/or e-mail.

If an ownership change occurs and you receive a tax bill for a property you no longer own, please forward the tax bill to the current owner or return the bill as soon as possible to the RM of Cartier.

If you recently purchased a property this year and have not received your tax bill, please contact the office at 204-353-2214 to request a copy.

T.I.P.P. Program - is available!
 The Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) is a monthly tax payment plan that allows rate payers to make consecutive monthly payments that are deducted automatically from their bank account.

The TIPP Program payments are made on the fifteenth banking day of each month through automatic withdrawal from an account with chequing privileges at a financial institution.

The TIPP program collects taxes for the calendar year January 1st to December 31st and ensures that all taxes are paid without penalty.

Contact the RM Office for information on how to sign up. Applications are accepted throughout the calendar year. All account balances with the RM must be current in order to be eligible for the program.

Please fill out the TIPP Application Form, along with a void cheque and send to our office.
