will be accepted. Receipts will be forwarded by mail. Pre-payments will be accepted.

Please note that the R.M. of Rosser has no control over the school tax portion of your property tax bill. It is important that rate-payers are aware of the fact that school taxes are entirely the responsibility of the Province of Manitoba and School Boards. The municipality is required, by Provincial Statute, to collect them. More information can be obtained by contacting the Interlake School Division at 467-8485 or your school trustee.
