CBC Manitoba: Manitoba to scrap 50% provincial property tax break in 2025, replace it with flat $1,500 credit

March 29, 2024 — 

The change in property tax credits will not affect municipal property taxes, which are applied on the same bill.

Paul Thomas, professor emeritus of political studies at the University of Manitoba, said the NDP government may find it difficult to communicate the change in provincial property tax breaks, even as people who own more modest houses stand to benefit more from the new credit.

“They better have some some plausible and effective way to communicate that change,” Thomas said in an interview, referring to Kinew’s NDP. “People are used to benefits like that. When they get used to them, it’s very hard to take them away.”
