The Farmland School Tax Rebate (FSTR) was implemented in 2004 to support the rural economy by providing Manitoba farmland owners with school tax relief.

The rebate percentage has increased from 33% in 2004 to 80% in 2018. Landowners are required to submit an annual application to Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC). Once you are registered with MASC and receive a rebate, a pre-printed application form for the following year will be mailed to you when they become available. First time applicants can find application forms and additional information on this website in the fall of 2019.

The deadlines to apply for the 2018 and earlier year rebates have now passed. If you have not applied for the 2018 rebate, a pre-printed application form will not be mailed to you. Please call (204) 726-7068 if you would like a 2019 application form to be mailed to you once they are available.
