The Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet taxation year runs from January to December. 

2023 Property taxes are due Sept. 15, 2023 (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 are added to any outstanding taxes on the first of every month, beginning Oct. 1, 2023. Failure to receive a bill does NOT excuse an owner from responsibility for payment of taxes nor relieve that owner from liability for any late payment penalty.

Supplementary tax statements will be issued to properties that have changes in assessment due to new construction or renovations which were not reflected on the annual tax statements and will be mailed out by the end of August.

If you are moving, please provide us with your new civic address and complete mailing address. To make address changes online please see: Change of address

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 it immediately to the Municipal office.

If you purchased a property this year and you did not receive a tax statement, please contact the Municipal office at 204-345-2619 and we will send you a copy.

Calculating Property Taxes

Portioned Assessment/1000 x Mill Rate = Tax Amount
