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 its current level of 60%. Landowners are required to submit an annual application to Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC). If you received a rebate in 2020, a pre-populated application form will be supplied to you in 2021.
If this is your first time applying for the rebate, application forms and additional information are available below.
Completed and signed 2021 FSTR applications must be received by MASC by March 31, 2022. Your 2021 property taxes, any penalties or interest charges, and Real Estate Services Board (RESB) lease fees must be paid by March 31, 2022.
