Manitoba’s PST to return to 7% on July 1

Published July 11, 2019

Manitoba’s sales tax will drop to 7 per cent on July 1 — fulfilling an election campaign promise from the Pallister government to reduce the provincial sales tax by 1 per cent, six years after the previous government raised it.

According to the province’s 2019 budget: “This sales tax cut reduces the retail sales tax rate by 12.5 per cent and will benefit all Manitobans and businesses.”

A reminder to foodservice operators: All automated point-of-sale systems will need to be updated to reflect the new tax level to ensure that customers are not overcharged.
