Manitoba Children's Arts and Cultural Activity Tax Credit

Started in 2011, the Manitoba children's arts and cultural activity tax credit is available for eligible non-fitness activities for each child under 16.  The Manitoba 2017 Budget indicated that legislation will be tabled to ensure that this credit is continued, although the Federal credit is eliminated for 2017.

The tax credit is based on up to $500 of eligible costs for each child, and is calculated using the lowest tax rate (10.8%), so the maximum tax credit per child is $54.

An additional tax credit is available to an individual for a child under 18 with a disability.  The additional credit will be $500 x the lowest tax rate, if the total of eligible costs for that child in the year is $100 or more.

The tax credit may be claimed by either spouse, or apportioned between them.

For information on eligible activities, see the Manitoba Finance information on the Children's Arts and Cultural Activity Tax Credit.

The Manitoba Children's Arts and Cultural Activity Credit is included in the Canadian Tax Calculator, but the amount is not checked to ensure that the maximum is not exceeded.
