Taxes and Properties:
New homes are typically sent a supplementary tax bill. Supplementary tax bills are mailed out the first week of October and due the last business day in December. Depending on the completion date of your home and/or if the home has been assessed, you may receive a tax bill for both the previous and current year.
If you no longer own the property, please forward the tax bill to your lawyer handling the sale of the property or contact the Village of St-Pierre-Jolys.
New property owners are responsible for payment of property taxes whether or not they received a notice. Failure to receive a tax bill is not sufficient reason for late payment or non-payment; penalties will be applied. Please contact the Village if you have not received a tax bill.
Properties that are not receiving the education tax credit must apply. To qualify, the property must be your principal residence; a single-dwelling unit; you must have occupied it as of January 1st; and you must not be receiving the credit for another residence. The deadline to apply for 2020 has passed. You may claim the Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit on your 2020 income tax return. Please contact the village to have it applied to future notices or click here: (https://www.gov.mb.ca/financi/tao/eptc.html )
No, you must be living in the home as of January 1 of the current year. You may claim the credit on your Income Taxes (it may be prorated for the amount of months you lived in the home).

Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit
If you are a Manitoba resident who pays more than $250 of property tax in a year, you are entitled to a Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit (EPTC). This is true whether you are a homeowner who pays property tax directly, or a tenant who pays property tax indirectly through your rent.
To qualify for the Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit Advance, the property must be your principal residence; you must have occupied it as of January 1 of the current year; and you must not be receiving the credit for another residence.
Please contact the Village at 204-433-7832 if you have recently moved and the above criteria is met. Homeowners who already receive the tax credit on their property tax statement are not impacted. Additional information can be found on the Province of Manitoba website https://www.gov.mb.ca/finance/tao/eptc.html
The deadline to apply for 2020 has past. You may claim it on your 2020 personal income tax return. Please contact the city to have the rebate applied to future notices.
