New Deal Homeowners Calculator

WINNIPEG - October 14, 2003 - Winnipeggers can now figure out what a New Deal could mean to them in actual dollars and cents using an online calculator available at winnipeg.ca/newdeal.

The quick, easy-to-use eTool allows homeowners to compare:

  1. What taxes and user fees they could pay under the current property tax system.
  2. What they could pay under a proposed New Deal, which shifts the tax burden onto user fees and consumption taxes, and generates new revenue.
  3. What they could pay if an additional $120 million is invested in infrastructure, but raised only through property taxes.

By using the New Deal Homeowners Calculator, Winnipeggers can test how their actions and choices will influence how much they pay in taxes and user fees.

The calculator was designed by members of the City of Winnipegís Strategic Management and Corporate Information Technology teams.

To use the calculator, homeowners must provide some personal information, such as the assessed value of their home, their estimated household income and how much they pay for electricity, natural gas, liquor and filling up their vehicle. The Homeowners Calculator will do the rest.

Mayor Glen Murray said he hopes homeowners will check it out today and if they have any questions, he urges them to log on to tonightís eTown Hall meeting at winnipeg.ca/new from 7-9 p.m.

Winnipeggers are also encouraged to come out to one of the six remaining Town Hall meetings being held:
