Tax Notices & Bill Information
Property Tax Information
Your Property Tax Notice is a statement identifying how much your property tax is for the current tax year, including details of the taxing authorities that receive a portion of your tax dollars.
The tax year begins January 1st and ends December 31st of the current year. Tax notices are sent to property owners at the end of May/beginnning of June. Property tax deadline is December 31.
The Town levies property taxes each year. Your annual property tax notice will include municipal taxes, as well as taxes imposed by other taxing authorities like school divisions or library boards. The Tax Enforcement Act and The Tax Enforcement Regulations provides the Town of Regina Beach direction about enforcing the collection of property taxes.
If you would like to obtain property tax information for a property, you may request a tax certificate. A tax certificate will provide you with the following:
- the amount of taxes levied and still owing;
- the total amount of arrears;
- the amount of any current or proposed local improvements attached to the property;
- whether an assessment appeal is outstanding; and
- whether there are outstanding amounts that may be added as a result of an order to remedy a condition of the property.
A tax certificate is $25 per property. Requests for tax certificates must be made in writing and clearly identify the requested property.
If you are the property owner and you'd like an update on the balance of your property tax account, please call the Town Office at 306-729-2202.
After the Province, other taxing authorities and the Town of Regina Beach determine their annual budgets, the Town uses the mills rates (also known as tax rates) and council-approved tax policies to calculate your property tax.
