Manitoba tabled its 2013 budget on April 16, 2013. The budget increases the provincial sales tax rate to 8% (from 7%), starting July 1, 2013. The budget also decreases the dividend tax credit on non-eligible dividends starting in 2014 to offset the impact of the federal change affecting non-eligible dividends announced in the 2013 federal budget. Manitoba also introduces a new tax credit for rental housing construction, along with changes to several other tax credits for businesses.
