PC

  • Halve the tax rate for the lowest provincial income tax bracket over 4 years

    "To create bigger paycheques for all Manitobans, a re-elected PC government will cut the tax rate on the lowest provincial income tax bracket in half over the next four years, representing a 1.35% tax reduction annually, PC Leader Heather Stefanson announced today.

    For the average income of $50,000, that amounts to savings of $1,900 per year by 2028, or roughly the equivalent of an extra paycheque every year, providing long-term tax relief for Manitobans." — pcmanitoba.com, 2023-09-05

  • Remove PST on trees and flowers

    "To put more ‘green’ back into Manitoba streets and gardens, a re-elected PC government will remove the PST from the sale of trees and flowers, Janice Morley-Lecomte, PC candidate for Seine River, announced today.

    “We want every Manitoba family to have the opportunity to beautify their homes and neighbourhoods, and dig into the benefits of gardening,” said Morley-Lecomte. “More trees and plants mean cleaner air and healthier communities. We believe these measures will make home and community greening efforts more affordable, and help us all add an extra splash of nature to our streets.”

    Fruit and vegetable plants are already exempt from PST, Morley-Lecomte noted. Extending the exemption will build on the PCs’ commitment in Budget 2023 to plant an extra 1 million trees every year in rural, urban, and Indigenous communities across Manitoba over the next decade, she said." — pcmanitoba.com, retrieved 2023-09-17

  • Remove PST on restaurant meals

Liberal

  • Provide income tax relief on a sliding scale for those earning up to $120K

All Manitobans earning up to $120,000 will be eligible for income tax relief on a sliding scale; which represents 96% of Manitobans. For the 0.1% making $300,000 and up, the exemption would be zero." — Dougald Lamont & the Manitoba Liberals — Real Choice, Real Change

Utilities

PC

  • Instruct Manitoba Hydro to remove the carbon tax from all bills

    "Manitobans also continue to be punished by the unfair NDP-Liberal Carbon Tax, and the PCs have previously committed to fighting the carbon tax on Manitoba Hydro.
