Tax Credit Programs

Manitoba Education Property Tax Credit (EPTC)

The Education Property Tax Credit (EPTC) is a Provincial Tax Credit for homeowners and tenants 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.

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 $700.

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 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 years’ 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 years’ 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:

  1. Mail or in-person drop off:
