Economic Development

 The City of Winkler has recently introduced a Commercial and Industrial Financial Assistance Program.

This is a tax credit for any new general municipal taxes which result from an increase in the assessed value of the property due to a building addition, renovation or new construction.

Businesses will be eligible for a period of five years.

The tax credit will roll out as follows:

  • Year 1, 100% on the general municipal taxes
  • Year 2, 80% on the general municipal taxes
  • Year 3, 60% on the general municipal taxes
  • Year 4, 40% on the general municipal taxes
  • Year 5, 20% on the general municipal taxes.

The tax credit does not apply to any school taxes or local improvement by-laws. See attached Property Tax Bill for an example.
