Manitoba Tuition Fee Income Tax Rebate
Manitoba Income Tax Act s. 4.9.1
The Manitoba 2017 Budget announced that the Tuition Fee Income Tax Rebate would be phased out commencing in 2017, and fully eliminated for the 2018 tax year, at which time no rebate credits will be claimable. Any unclaimed rebate credits will lapse.
This rebate is available to Manitoba taxpayers who graduate after January 1, 2007 from an eligible post-secondary institution, and stay and work in the province.

The Manitoba 2017 Budget announced that this advance is eliminated effective for tuition and ancillary fees paid in relation to a school term that begins after April 2017. However, the Education Amount Tax Credit will still be available.
Beginning in 2010, students resident in Manitoba and attending a post-secondary institution were able to claim a Tuition Fee Income Tax Rebate Advance. This is a 5% refundable tax credit on tuition and ancillary fees paid after August 31, 2010.
The student was able to claim this refundable tax credit even if the tuition and education amount is transferred to a parent or spouse. Limits:
Amounts claimed as an Advance will reduce the lifetime maximum of $25,000 under the Rebate following graduation.
When a student is claiming a Rebate in a given year, they are not eligible to claim the Advance.
Revised: September 19, 2017
