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 2017. 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.
Pre-printed 2017 applications have now been mailed to those who received a rebate in 2016. If this is your first time applying for the rebate, application forms and additional information are available below.
Completed and signed Farmland School Tax Rebate applications for the 2017 property tax year must be received by MASC by March 31, 2018. Your 2017 property taxes, any penalties or interest charges, and CLPA lease fees must be paid by March 31, 2018.
The deadlines to apply for the 2016 and earlier year rebates have now passed.
