It's time to pay your taxes if your live in the city of Steinbach.

The deadline is 4 pm Friday, September 29th.  About 95 per cent of us pay our taxes on time.  City Treasurer Troy Warkentin says that makes life so much easier  because they don't have to try and scrape together additional money to cover the shortfall.  For those still procrastinating on their taxes there is a penalty of one per cent per month on any outstanding balance.  In total the city will be collecting just over $12.5 million which is up half a million dollars from last year due to re-assessment and the growth in the city.
