Tax Development Aug 25, 2010

The province of Manitoba has updated this bulletin, replacing the previous version dated May 2010.  Exemptions for medical equipment and supplies without a prescription (Section 3) have been updated to include back-open or side-open adaptive clothing designed for the provision of care.  Exemptions for equipment and supplies with a prescription (Section 4) are exempted under a written order from a medical practitioner which include a doctor’s prescription or a written order from a registered nurse, occupational therapist or physiotherapist.  Previously, these exemptions were only available under a doctor’s prescription.
