Manitoba farmers continue to bear a large burden with the education property tax. Farms continue to grow in acres and property values continue to rise. This translates into higher property taxes for farmers.
Besides advocating for the complete removal of the education property tax, KAP has also asked for relief through lowering the portioned percentage on farm property. Currently, the portioned percentage for farm property is 26 per cent.
KAP wrote a letter to the Minister of Municipal Relations requesting a reduction in the portioned percentage on farm property.
