Imposition of tax

3(1)        For each taxation year ending after 2010, a credit union must pay to the government a tax equal to the amount determined by the following formula:

In this formula,

R

is a reduction equal to

(a) $400,000, unless the credit union is associated with another credit union at any time in the taxation year,

(b) nil, if the credit union is associated with one or more other credit unions at any time in the taxation year and no agreement under subsection (2) has been filed for the credit union for the taxation year, or

(c) subject to subsection (3), the amount allocated to the credit union in an agreement filed under subsection (2) for the taxation year;

D

is 365 or the number of the days in the taxation year during which the credit union has a permanent establishment in Manitoba, whichever is less;

T

is the credit union's tax payable under The Income Tax Act for the taxation year, after deducting any tax credits claimed by the credit union.

Allocation agreement among associated credit unions

3(2)        Two or more credit unions that are associated with each other at any time may file with the director an agreement, in a form acceptable to the director, under which the amount of $400,000 is allocated among them for the taxation years that include that time.  The total of the amounts so allocated for those taxation years must not exceed $400,000.

Allocations under multiple agreements
