9,000 seniors have applied for school tax rebate; application now available online

  • Print

The province says seniors may now apply for the government's school tax rebate online.

This year, the total maximum rebate is $235. With existing education property tax credits, seniors stand to save up to $1,335 on their property tax bills.

More than 9,000 seniors have already applied for the new rebate using the paper application form since it was launched last month, the government said on Friday. About $2.1 million has been paid out.

Seniors can apply online as soon as they receive their property tax statement from their local municipality. The website also features an eligibility calculator to estimate the rebate senior homeowners may qualify for as well as a printable application form for seniors who prefer to apply by mail or fax. Those who have already submitted an application by mail, fax or in-person do not need to resubmit their application using the new online system.

Seniors can also contact the province's tax assistance office by calling 204-945-7555 in Winnipeg or 1-855-893-8266 (toll-free), or by email at seniorsrebate@gov.mb.ca.
