Farmland School Tax Rebate

 
The deadlines to apply for the 2016 and earlier year rebates have now passed. If you have not applied for the 2016 rebate, a pre-printed application form will not be mailed to you. Please call (204) 726-7068 if you would like a 2017 application form to be mailed to you once they are available.

 

Seniors' School Tax Rebate

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.

For 2016, the maximum Rebate limit of $470 for eligible seniors is retained.

The Rebate is now calculated based on net school taxes paid, after the Basic and Seniors’ Education Property Tax Credits (EPTC) are taken into account. In addition, for eligible senior households with a net family income of over $40,000, the Rebate will be reduced by 2.0% of net family income over $40,000. Eligible seniors below the $40,000 income-tested threshold will still be eligible for a full Rebate depending on net school tax paid. Senior households with a family net income of $63,500 or more will no longer receive the Rebate.
