- Education Property Tax Credit Advance (EPTCA) – please visit website here
Most homeowners currently receive this property tax credit directly on their tax statement. Eligible recipients may receive up to a maximum of $700 as a reduction of their school division taxes. You are eligible to receive this credit once for your primary residence that you own. You will not be approved for this credit to display on your tax statement if your home is registered in a corporate name, if you have more than 1 dwelling on your property, or if your mailing address is not local. If you did not receive the EPTCA, but believe that you qualify, please contact our office or the Manitoba Tax Assistance Office.
- Senior's School Tax Rebate - please visit website here
The Senior's School Tax Rebate has changed effective 2016. The 2016 Rebate will be claimed when you file your 2016 income tax return in the spring of 2017. This means that a separate application for the Rebate is no longer necessary. It also means that in future years, you will be able to make retroactive claims for up to three years, but no further back than the 2016 Rebate.
- Farmland School Tax Rebate – please visit website here
The Manitoba government is offering a rebate of up to 80% of the school taxes levied on your farmland for 2016. The Farmland School Tax Rebate reduces the net school taxes paid on your farmland. Your application for the 2016 tax year must be received by MASC by March 31, 2017.
How it works
If you are a Manitoba resident who owns farmland in Manitoba and you paid your 2016 property taxes, you may be eligible for the rebate. The rebate applies only to the school taxes assessed on your farmland and does not apply to residences or buildings.
How to apply
If you received a rebate for 2015, a 2016 application form was mailed to you. You can also download an application form from masc.mb.ca or pick one up from your local Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC) office, Manitoba Agriculture office or municipal office.
