How are Property Taxes Calculated
Property taxes are calculated by applying municipal and school mill rates against the portioned assessment of your property. For calculating taxes, one mill represents $1.00 of taxes for every $1,000.00 of portioned assessment.
Property tax statements are issued each year in accordance with the latest property ownership information provided to the Municipality. If an ownership change has occurred, please forward the property tax statement to the current owner or return it immediately to the Municipal Office. Failure to receive a bill does not excuse an owner from responsibility for payment of taxes or application of late penalties.
Taxes are due by October 31. Penalty on arrears is calculated at 1.25% per month commencing on November 1. Penalties are calculated and added on the first day of each month that the taxes remain unpaid. Lands in arrears for more than one year will be subject to tax sale. Arrears that are shown on your tax bill are subject to further penalties.
The effective date for payments made to the R.M. of St. Andrews will be the actual day of receipt by the Municipal Office. To avoid late fees, mail in a postdated cheque and allow ample time for the payment to be received at the office or allow 4 to 5 business days for online payments to be processed by your financial institution and the R.M. of St. Andrews financial institution.
For your convenience, there is a dropbox located at the entrance of the Municipal Office for those who are unable to attend during office hours.
Tax receipts will only be issued upon request.
There are a number of ways to pay your annual property taxes.

Note: Please write your roll number on the cheque and ensure your envelope is post marked before the due date. Post dated cheques are welcome.

To do this, you must access your existing on-line bill payment system through your financial institution's website and add the R.M. of St. Andrews as a Payee. You will then use your Roll Number, without the decimal, as the account number. The account number must be a total of 9 digits. Please be sure to allow at least 5 business days for processing of payment.
If you have a roll no. with 4 digits such as 1917 - you would enter 001917000 (two zeros in front and 3 at the end)
If you have a roll no. with 5 digits such as 43605 - you would enter 043605000 (one zero in front and 3 at the end)

Tax Sale Proceedings for Properties in Arrears of Taxes
Any ratepayer who is 2 years in arrears of taxes will be notified that their property will be going into tax sale if not paid by a specific date. Each year the municipality holds a public auction which is advertised in the Selkirk Record as well as posted on the home page of our website under Municipal News. This notice will list all the details of the auction along with a list of the properties up for sale. TAXervice manages the entire tax sale process for the municipality. Property owners have right until the time of the auction to redeem the property. If a property goes into tax sale proceedings, extra costs will be added for advertising, legal fees etc.

1. The property must be your principal residence.
2. The property must be assessed as a single residential dwelling.

If you rent an apartment, then you may be entitled to the tax credit, however you will need to claim the tax credit on your income tax return.
