What is this?

The Manitoba Nutrient Management Tax Credit is a refundable tax credit that you can claim if you were the sole proprietor or general partner of a farming business in Manitoba that incurred eligible nutrient management equipment expenditures during the year.

The credit amount that you are able claim is equal to 10% of the total expenditure amount minus any government assistance that you received, or expect to receive, relating to the expenditures.

 

Am I eligible?

You can claim the Manitoba nutrient management tax credit if you have a permanent establishment in Manitoba, and have incurred eligible expenditures while carrying on the business of farming.

CRA says…

Eligible expenditures refer to the capital cost of solid-liquid separation systems, anaerobic digesters, gravity settling tanks, manure treatment systems, manure composting facilities, and storage tanks suitable for winter manure storage if you have fewer than 300 animal units.

Your credit is 10% of the eligible expenditures minus any government assistance received or receivable that relates to the expenditures.
