CHANGES TO THE EPTC PROCESS EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2019
The Province of Manitoba Tax Assistance Office has advised that there are changes to the Education Property Tax Credit (EPTC) process effective January 1, 2019.
Currently, all property owners must pay the first $250.00 of residential property tax, which includes municipal and education levies, then are eligible for up to $700.00 EPTC grant which is deducted from your tax bill for each year. Effective January 1, 2019, the $250.00 minimum has been removed, however, the EPTC will now only apply to the education portion of your tax bill, not the municipal portion. Letters have been sent to those property owners that would be affected by this change based on the 2018 tax year.
