Manitoba municipalities calling for rebate on provincial sales tax

WINNIPEG – Some Manitoba communities say it’s time for the province to rebate the provincial sales tax paid by municipalities.

It’s the first resolution up for debate at this week’s Association of Manitoba Municipalities annual convention.

The resolution, tabled by the RM of Portage la Prairie, says the PST is a significant expense added on to services, supplies, and capital projects.

It says the province should follow the lead of Ottawa, which provides a full rebate on the GST to municipalities.
