Tax Appeals
If you have received a Notice of Assessment issued by the Compliance and Enforcement Division and you disagree with the assessment, you may be able to appeal the assessment to the independent Tax Appeals Commission.
The commission’s role is to provide rulings for appeals filed by taxpayers who disagree with assessments issued by Manitoba’s taxation officials. The commission provides Manitoba taxpayers with a fair and independent appeals process for assessments issued under the tax statutes administered by Manitoba Finance. The commission consists of independent members (non-civil servants) who establish their own hearing schedules, and prepare their own administrative work.
Before you appeal your assessment, you may wish to contact Manitoba Finance. Manitoba Finance may be able to:
·         answer your questions
·         provide further explanation
·         help to resolve your concerns
You can contact Manitoba Finance using the information listed on the notice you received.
Please note that contacting Manitoba Finance does not start the appeal process or extend the deadline to file your appeal.
Information on how to appeal your assessment is included on the assessment. For additional information regarding the appeal process, please see Information Bulletin TAMTA-001 Taxation Division Audits.
Additional information regarding the Tax Appeals Commission can be found in the Finance section of the Agencies, Boards and Commissions webpage.
