  • Cash
  • Debit – Check with your financial institution to ensure your point of purchase limit is high enough for the amount you wish to pay

Please note: we currently do not accept credit card payments

  • Pre-authorized payments (PAP) – PAPs are regular payments drawn monthly from your financial institution and can be set up at the RM office.

You will receive a regular tax bill in the summer and payments made after June 30 will not be reflected on your tax statement but will have been credited to your tax account. We ask that you review regularly to ensure proper payments are being made as you are still responsible if your financial institution makes an error.

Residents should ensure that the amount is enough to cover the taxes each year, if property taxes increase, your PAP amount will likely need to be increased. Any changes to your PAP (increase, decrease, cancellation) must be made in writing.

  • Online Bill Payment – Pay online through your financial institution’s website. Note that online payments can take 3-5 business days to reach our office, please take this into consideration when paying before the October 31st due date as interest may be added if received late.
    • For this service we have partnered with BMO, TD Canada Trust, CIBC, Manitoba Credit Unions, RBC, Scotia Bank Group
      • Login to your financial institution’s website to make the payment
      • Set the transaction up as a bill payment. For the bill payee, it varies between financial institutions but it will be similar ‘RM of St. Clements (taxes)’ – click here to see if your bank is on our list of major banks to find the payee name
      • Use your roll number as the account number
        • Drop any zeros at the start of the number, ignore the decimal, and add any numbers after the decimal
          example 1: roll number 00012345.123 would be account number 12345123
          example 2: roll number 00054321.000 would be account number 54321000
      • Make the payment as you would a bill payment

* Arrears: money that is owed that should have been paid earlier

Credits on Property Taxes

If you are part of a pre-authorized payment program and have paid excess on your property taxes or have a credit sitting on your account, you are able to request the credit back to you in the form of a cheque. At any time of the year simply send in a letter request or email request for your credit to be refunded. Cheques are prepared weekly and it can take a maximum of two weeks to receive a payment by mail.

Supplemental Tax Billing and Assessment Appeals to Board of Revision

If your property value has changed due to construction (ex. a new garage being built), demolition, subdivision, etc. a supplemental bill is produced to adjust for the difference and may either increase or decrease the value of your property.

In addition, under provincial legislation, all properties in Manitoba are assessed every two years to ensure assessments keep pace with changing market values.

You can not appeal your amount of property taxes, but you can appeal the assessed value/supplemental billing of your property through the board of revision held every fall.

If you then wish to dispute your re-assessment, please first contact the Provincial Assessment Branch by phone at 204-785-5092 or by visiting their office located at 103-235 Eaton Ave in Selkirk. If no agreement is reached with the Assessment Office, a taxpayer may apply to the Board of Revision. The Board of Revision is a committee that will sit down with the tax payer and examine the tax payer’s reasoning behind the dispute of the reassessment. Please complete the Board of Revision Application Form if you wish to appeal.

Assessment Services

Assessment Services is responsible for the assessment of all real and personal property in the province, excluding property in the City of Winnipeg.

In Manitoba, property is assessed at market value in accordance with The Municipal Assessment Act. Market value is the most probable selling price of the property had it been sold by a willing seller to a willing buyer. Regular reassessments ensure that property assessments keep pace with real estate market conditions, and taxes are distributed fairly to property owners.

By visiting their website, you can search for properties, view contacts and find out more information and view frequently asked questions.

Moving in or out of the municipality

Let the RM office know of any change in ownership or mailing address in order to ensure that the tax statement is properly forwarded.
If the property is in the process of changing owners, the person named on the tax statement is responsible for paying the property tax.  The lawyers typically handle who pays which portion for the year and will have that outlined in your purchase agreement.

If ownership changed after the tax statement was issued, please forward the tax statement to the current owner or return it immediately to the RM office.

The property owner is responsible for tax payment even if they didn’t receive a statement and are liable for penalties arising from late payment.

Education Property Tax Credit (EPTCA)

You can visit the Province of Manitoba web page for more information. This website also has a list of Frequently Asked Questions about EPTCA.

Whether you own or rent your home, you could be eligible for some savings with the Manitoba government’s Education Property Tax Credit (EPTC). The credit is provided by the province of Manitoba to help cover the school taxes you pay, or a portion of your rent either directly on your municipal property tax statement or through your income tax return.

Seniors may be eligible for additional savings. See below to learn more.


If you own your home and pay property taxes, you can save on your school taxes with the EPTC. To check if you are already receiving the Credit, review your property tax statement from your local municipality to see if you receive the “Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit Advance”. If you do not already have the Credit applied to your municipal property tax statement, you can still receive it:

  • The credit can be applied to your municipal property taxes if you apply before November 15. To qualify for this option, you must have lived in your home since January 1 of the current year. Using this approach, the credit will be applied to your property taxes and you will only then be required to pay the difference. In the following year, the credit will automatically be advanced on your municipal property tax statement.
  • After November 15, you can claim the EPTC on your personal income tax return. The Credit is claimed on the Manitoba Income Tax Form MB479 – Manitoba Credits.


If you rent your home, you may still qualify to receive savings with the EPTC. The Credit is claimed on the Manitoba Income Tax Form MB479 – Manitoba Credits.

Education Property Tax Rebate

Farmland School Tax Rebate

The Farmland School Tax Rebate (FSTR) was implemented in 2004 to support the rural economy by providing Manitoba farmland owners with school tax relief. The rebate percentage has increased from 33% in 2004 to 80% in 2016. Landowners are required to submit an annual application to Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC). Once you are registered with MASC and receive a rebate, a pre-printed application form for the following year will be mailed to you when they become available.

How it works

If you are a Manitoba resident who owns farmland in Manitoba and you paid your property taxes, you may be eligible for the rebate. The rebate applies only to the school taxes assessed on your farmland and does not apply to residences or buildings.

How to apply

If you received a previous rebate application, a form will be mailed to you. You can also download an application form from or pick one up from your local Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC) office, Manitoba Agriculture office or municipal office.
