Portage la Prairie Property Taxes

The property tax in Manitoba is made out of four parts:

  1. A municipal rate that is different for each municipality
  2. A provincial Education Rate that is the same for all municipalities
  3. A School Division Rate that is different for each municipality
  4. Additional taxes for local services as needed

Every year, the education tax is set by the provincial Minister of Education while the rest is set by the City Council; the rates are expressed in mills based on how much revenue they predict to need to fund services, where 1 mill = 0.001.

Manitoba uses a portioned assessment system which was introduced in 1990 to distribute the taxes since market values increase at different rates for each class of property. Thus, each class of property will have a different sized portion of their assessed value that is taxable.

Assessed Value of a Property

Properties in Manitoba are assessed every two years by the district assessment office. Most properties are assessed using a market value-based approach. There are three ways to determine a property’s market value:

  1. Sales Comparison Approach
  2. Residential properties are valued under this approach. This compares the sales of similar properties in the assessment year to determine a valuation for the property. The assessed value may not equal the actual market value or sale value of a property.

  3. Cost Approach
  4. Unique and rarely traded properties are valued under this approach. This uses the cost of the property if someone were to rebuild it to determine a valuation for the property minus depreciation due to age or other factors. This includes the price of the land and the price of all improvements (e.g. buildings) on top of it. While this takes into account the market value of the land, it does not consider the market value of the property as a whole.

  5. Income Approach
  6. For properties that are dedicated to generating income like rental properties or offices, an income-based approach is used. This approach uses the income generated by the property as well as the sales price to determine its assessed value.
