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 current FSTR rebate percentage is up to 50 per cent of school tax to a maximum of $3,125 between related parties. Landowners are required to submit an annual application to Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC). If you received a rebate in 2021, a pre-populated application form will be supplied to you in 2022.
If this is your first time applying for the rebate, application forms and additional information are available below.
Completed and signed 2022 FSTR applications must be received by MASC by March 31, 2023. Your 2022 property taxes, any penalties or interest charges, and Real Estate Services Branch (RESB) lease fees must be paid by March 31, 2023.
