RM of Gimli is prepared to ease the financial burden of COVID-19 on Property and Business owners.
Council has made the decision to waive penalties for unpaid property and business taxes for up to two months following the due date of August 31, 2020. Late fees will be waived until October 31, 2020.
This unprecedented plan to provide financial relief for property and business taxpayers is our way of showing our support to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand that not everyone may have the ability to pay bills on time; however those who are able to meet the due date are encouraged to do so.
Mayor & Council
The property tax and business tax statements are mailed out in June and are payable on the last business day of August.
Taxes are assessed from January 1st to December 31st of the current year.
All outstanding balances are charged a penalty of 1.25% per month on the 1st of every month until the balance is paid in full. The annual rate of interest the Municipality charges is 15%.
If you do not receive a property or business tax statement please contact the Municipal Office at (204) 642-6650. It is the property owner’s responsibility to notify the Municipal office of mailing address changes.
If you have purchased or sold property please check with your solicitor to see who is responsible for tax payment.
The property owner's name and address which appears on the tax statement is in accordance with the latest information which has been made available to the municipality. If, however, any ownership change has since occurred, please forward the bill to the current owner or return it immediately to the municipal office with an explanation. 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.
Please be advised we do not have a mail slot at our current building therefore please be sure to arrange for delivery of payments during office hours, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. The current year’s taxes must be received by the Municipality on the last business day of August or they will be considered late and will be assessed a penalty at the rate listed above. We do not accept postmarks.
If you are a business owner and you have closed your business or have relocated please report to the Selkirk Assessment office at telephone number 1-866-262-9786.
If you have questions or concerns with respect to your assessment please contact the Selkirk Assessment office at telephone number 1-866-262-9786.
