Education Property Tax Credit
Manitoba will begin phasing out education property taxes by implementing the Education Property Tax Rebate. Property owners will receive an Education Property Tax Rebate cheque to reduce a portion of their education property taxes, enabling them to keep more of their hard earned money. No application is required.
For 2021, owners of residential and farm properties will receive a 25 per cent rebate of the school division special levy payable. Residential properties include single dwelling units, condos and multiple unit dwellings. The Education Property Tax Rebate will be based on the school division special levy before the Education Property Tax Credit Advance.
As part of the Education Property Tax Rebate, other tax credits and rebates will be proportionally reduced as follows:
