Am I eligible for Education Property Tax Credit?
If you own your home and pay property taxes, you could be eligible to save up to $437.50 for the 2022 tax year with the Manitoba government’s Education Property Tax Credit (EPTC). The credit helps to cover the school taxes you pay, either directly on your municipal property tax statement or through your income tax return. Seniors may be eligible for additional savings.
The process that allows new or first time homeowners who are eligible to apply the basic $437.50 Education Property Tax Credit on the property tax statement for their principal residence has been streamlined, reducing costs for Manitobans and the province. Instead of applying to Manitoba Finance during a limited period of the year, homeowners will be able to self-assess and notify their municipal office at any time throughout the year.
Homeowners who notify their municipality before the printing of the municipal property tax statement for the year will have the credit applied starting in that year.
- Homeowners who notify their municipality after the printing of the municipal property tax statement for the year may claim the credit on their personal income tax return for that year and will receive the credit on their property tax statement in subsequent years.
Am I eligible for the Farmland School Tax Rebate?
The Farmland School Tax Rebate applies to all Class 30 Assessments of farm land only. Forms will be mailed out to you from your local Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC). If you did not receive a form please contact your local MASC office.
