City of Brandon 2015 Tax Bills

May 20, 2015

Brandon, MB - The City of Brandon’s Treasury Department would like to advise the public that 2015 tax bills have now been mailed out to property owners. When you receive your tax bill, please take a few moments to read the accompanying leaflets for more information on the City of Brandon’s 2015 Budget and this year’s municipal property tax details. If you own any property in the City of Brandon and do not receive a tax bill by May 29th, 2015, please contact the Property Tax Department by phoning 204-729-2228 or 204-729-2592 or by sending an email to

Taxes are due by end of business day (5 p.m.) on Tuesday, June 30th. Owners are responsible for payment of taxes, whether or not a bill is received. City Hall office hours are Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you are mailing your payment, please allow a minimum of three (3) business days to meet the June 30th deadline. Also, those paying by Internet or tele-banking should take notice of how many days their financial institution indicates it will take before the payee receives the funds. The City must receive the funds by the end of business day on June 30th.

A discount of 0.5% is allowed on all 2015 property tax payments received on or before May 30th, 2015. Penalties on unpaid taxes will accrue commencing July 1st, 2015, at a rate of 1.25% per month, as per City of Brandon By-law No.6658.

If you wish to avoid the long line ups nearing the June 30th payment deadline, the City of Brandon will permit you to leave a post-dated cheque, along with your tax stub, at the Treasury Department on the main floor of City Hall and the payment will be processed at month end. Receipts are not generally mailed out, as your cancelled cheque can serve as a receipt. However, if you require a receipt, please be sure to clearly indicate on the payment stub “Receipt Required”.

As a further service to taxpayers, annual taxes may also be paid monthly by automatic bank withdrawal using the City of Brandon’s Tax Installment Plan (TIP). Discounts and penalties for tax payment do not apply when the TIP program is used. The application deadline in order to be enrolled in the TIP program for 2015 is June 15th.
