Who is Eligible:
The Seniors’ School Tax Rebate provides savings for eligible Manitobans age 65 or older who own their own home or are responsible for the payment of school tax on their principal residence. For the 2016 and subsequent property tax years, the maximum Rebate limit of $470 for eligible seniors is retained.
Steps to Get this Rebate:
1. A separate application form is no longer required. You claim the 2016 Rebate when you file your 2016 income tax return in the spring of 2017. This 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.
