If you are 65 or older and own your home, Manitoba’s Seniors’ School Tax Rebate could mean savings for you. The Rebate is a part of the Manitoba government’s plan to eliminate school taxes for seniors by 2016. These savings are on top of up to $1,100 in Education Property Tax Credits already in place.
Until the March 31, 2016 deadline, eligible seniors who pay school taxes on their primary residence can apply for the 2015 Rebate of up to $470.
As soon as you receive your 2016 property tax bill from your local municipality, you can apply for the 2016 Rebate of up to $2,300, for which the deadline is March 31, 2017.
NOTE: Seniors who received a Rebate in 2015 will automatically be sent a 2016 application by mail within a few days of receiving their municipal tax statements.
