Pay By Credit Card on the Customer Portal

The Town of Stonewall is pleased to announce the launch of its new eServices website!!  This new eServices site is an online customer portal which will allow Stonewall Residents to view their Property Tax account balances, and receipts.  Payments can be made through the online customer portal using a credit card (subject to a convenience fee).

The new eServices site can be found at: https://stonewall.townsuite.com/

To take advantage of this new customer portal you will need an ACTIVATION KEY.  Please contact info@stonewall.ca for more information.

You will then need to sign in and register your account.  If you require any help with your initial sign in, a step-by-step cheat sheet can be found HERE.


Tax Statements
Tax Statements are mailed out each year in June/July.  If you are moving please provide us with your new civic address and complete mailing address. It is most important that the Town be advised promptly of any change of ownership or mailing address in order to ensure that the tax statement is properly forwarded.  If, however, an ownership change occurs and you receive a tax bill for a property you no longer own, please forward the tax bill to the current owner or return it immediately to the Town.  It should be noted that 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.

T.I.P.P. Program is available!
The Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) is a monthly tax payment plan that allows rate payers to make consecutive monthly payments that are deducted automatically from their bank account.

The TIPP Program starts on January 1st of each year and payments are made on the fifteenth day of each month through automatic withdrawal from an account with chequing privileges at a financial institution.  The TIPP program collects taxes for the calendar year January 1st to December 31st and ensures that all taxes are paid in full without penalty.  More information can be found HERE.

NEW!  Manitoba Education Property Tax REBATE Program
The Manitoba Government introduced the Education Property Tax Rebate for 2021.  Property owners will receive an Education Property Tax Rebate cheque for 25% of their school division tax levy in the month their taxes are due to reduce a portion of their education property taxes.  No application is required.  


Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit Program
The Manitoba Government offers an Education Property Tax Credit up to a maximum of $525.  If you do not already have the Credit applied to your municipal property tax statement, it can be claimed on your Personal Income Tax. The Credit is claimed on the Manitoba Income Tax Form MB479 – Manitoba Credits.

Savings for Seniors!
If you are 65 of age or older by the end of the year, you may qualify for additional savings from the Manitoba government to help cover your education property taxes.  These credits can be claimed on your Personal Income Tax on the Manitoba Income Tax Form MB479 – Manitoba Credits.
