TAX REBATE DEADLINE APPROACHES

February 15th is the deadline for owners of farm land to apply for a rebate on

their 2000 farm land property taxes.



The Farm Land Property Tax Rebate, announced in the 2000-2001 provincial

budget, provides a rebate of 25 per cent of the current school tax levy on farm

land and represents a $50 million, two year commitment by the Government of

Saskatchewan.



"This tax rebate is in place to help producers adjust to changing market

conditions and to help strengthen our industry," Agriculture and Food Minister

Clay Serby said.



"We want to remind producers to apply before the February 15th deadline."



Applications are available at Rural Service Centres and Rural Municipality

offices. Application forms are also available on the Saskatchewan Agriculture

and Food website at www.agr.gov.sk.ca. Farmers can call toll-free at

1-877-874-5365 for more information on the program.
