Available Credits

There are several property tax credits that you may be eligible to apply for, to assist in the payment of your property taxes.

Most homeowners currently receive this property tax credit directly on their tax statements. 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.
 
 
The Senior’s School Tax Rebate has changed effective 2016. The Rebate can be claimed when you file your income tax return. 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.
 
The Manitoba government is offering a rebate and landowners are required to submit an annual application to Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC). The rebate applies only to the school taxes assessed on your farmland and does not apply to residences or buildings. Please visit the website for more information.
