You’re looking at an extra $74 dollars in school taxes if you live in the Winnipeg School Division.
The Division approved a 5.89 per cent tax increase when it finalized its budget last night.
The tax hike comes after the division says it lost $5.5 million in funding because of revised property assessments.
Seven Oaks School Division is also raising taxes, but not by as much.
Trustees approved a 3.26 per cent increase last night. That means $61 for the average home that’s just under $300,000.
The division says the number of students is on the rise, so costs are as well.
The Louis Riel School Division, St. James-Assiniboia School Division and Pembina Trails School Division are all hiking taxes as they look to fill funding gaps.
