Tax Credit Programs

Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit (EPTC)

The Education Property Tax Credit (EPTC) is a Provincial Tax Credit for homeowners and tenants provided to offset the occupancy costs of property tax for homeowners and 20% of rent for tenants - payable in Manitoba.

The Education Property Tax Credit Advance is where the EPTC is applied directly to the municipal property tax statement for homeowners.

New for 2021

Starting in 2021, property owners in Manitoba will see a reduction in a portion of their education property taxes in the form of an Education Property Tax Rebate. The rebate is calculated based on the following rules:

  • Owners of residential and farm properties will receive a 25% rebate of the school division special levy payable in 2021. Please note that the municipal property tax bill will not be reduced to reflect this reduction. The Province of Manitoba will be issuing a rebate cheque directly to the property owner. 
  • Other property owners (such as commercial, industrial, institutional, railways, pipelines and designated recreational) will receive a 10% rebate of their education property taxes payable in 2021. Please note that the municipal property tax bill will not be reduced to reflect this reduction. The Province of Manitoba will be issuing a rebate cheque directly to the property owner. 
  • The Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit Advance will be reduced by 25% in 2021. This change will appear on the 2021 municipal property tax bill.

How/When will I Receive My Rebate?

The Province of Manitoba has advised that they will be mailing cheques to property owners for the Education Property Tax Rebate in the month that municipal property taxes are due. That will be June 2021 for residents of Winnipeg.

Questions related to the Education Property Tax Rebate should be directed to the Province of Manitoba:

EPTC Advance and EPTC Self-Declaration

The Education Property Tax Credit Advance can only be claimed on a homeowner’s principal residence, which may include more than one property in a year. For example, when a homeowner sells a principal residence and purchases another principal residence and each property received an Education Property Tax Credit Advance, that does not mean that the homeowner received more than the basic Education Property Tax Credit allowed of up to $525.

In order to qualify for the EPTC Advance on your taxes:

  1. The property must be your principal residence
  2. The property must be assessed as a single residential dwelling
  3. The homeowner cannot be receiving the credit on another home elsewhere in the Province

If you rent an apartment then you may be entitled to the tax credit, however you will need to claim the tax credit on your income tax return.

If you have not received the EPTC on your current year’s property tax bill, you will need to claim the tax credit for the current year on your income tax return.

In order to apply to have the credit added to your next year’s property tax bill you will need to fill out a Self-Declaration form found on this page and return the completed form to the City of Winnipeg, Assessment and Taxation Department by March 15th.

To advise the Assessment and Taxation Department that you should not receive the EPTC, please complete the Self-Declaration form, indicating this in the “Declaration” section of the form.

Completed Self-Declaration forms can be remitted to the Assessment and Taxation Department:
