Assessment and Taxation

Prepayments

The City of Winnipeg offers tax payers the ability to prepay their property and/or business taxes each year in either January or February.

The prepayment discount rates are normally approved by City Council in either November or December for the following year.

The City of Winnipeg will not be mailing out prepayment notices to property owners and/or businesses who prepaid their taxes for the current year.

If you wish to determine what your prepayment amount will be please use the Prepayment Estimator. The Prepayment Estimator will estimate the amount of the payment along with the discount based on your prior years taxes.

The prepayment of taxes may be made by electronic banking (telephone or personal) through arrangements you have made with your financial institution, in person or by mailing your cheque to the Assessment and Taxation Department. Cheques must be made payable to the City of Winnipeg and all prepayments must be received in the Assessment and Taxation Department before 4:30 pm on the last working day of January or the last working day of February in order to receive the prepayment discount.

To see the current rates and to learn how to calculate the prepayment discount please review the following information.

    DISCOUNT % FACTOR
January Realty 0.307% 0.99693
  Business 0.247% 0.99753
February Realty 0.249% 0.99751
  Business 0.188% 0.99812

The equivalent annual discount rate approximates 0.75%

Please use the Prepayment Estimator to calculate your current year estimated discount.

1. To apply a specific amount and want to know how much to pay:

The amount of taxes x the discount rate = the discount

The amount of taxes - the discount = total payable

For example, to make a $100 prepayment in Janaury:
$100 x 0.307% = $0.31
total payable is $100 - .31 = $99.69
