Homeowners tax credit

Hey.. just wanted to know, is every home in Brandon have that $700 yearly tax property credit? or only certain ones do?  
 
Is there a way a home cannot be eligible for that credit?

and if you just purchaeda your home

The Manitoba Education & property tax credit is different it comes off your tax bill  
For tenants reabte you have to claim the rent to get the tax credit this is provincial  
 
They are two differnt things the grant, and the property/education tax credi

Not all seniors get extra Education Property Tax Credit (EPTC).  
 
Quote from Manitoba Finance:  
"For 2012, if you are a senior citizen, and your income is no higher than $32,500, you may be eligible for an EPTC of up to $1,025."
