1. Assessment: The Market Value of your property based on two years prior. Assessments in Manitoba are determined by the Provincial Assessment Services Office. If you have any questions regarding your property assessment please click here.
2. Mill Rates:
a) Municipal Mill Rate - Determined by the Rural Municipality when the current year's budget is developed;
b) School Mill Rate - Determined by Mountain View School Division

If your current buildings/land have undergone an assessment change you may receive a supplementary tax bill in the fall. Please be advised that supplementary tax bills are not replacement bills and you are required to submit payment in addition to your original statement on the dates noted on the bill. If your supplementary tax bill is a credit, it will automatically be applied to your tax account. If your financial institution looks after your taxes, please ensure to notify them of the change.
