Project Announcement: New Mineral Rights Tax electronic system being developed!
The Ministry of Energy and Resources has initiated a project to replace its aging Mineral Rights Tax (MRT) data management system.
The MRT will be moving to the online Integrated Resource Information System (IRIS) in 2022. This move will allow for tax assessment based on mineral title holder information direct from Information Services Corporation (ISC). Other new features for clients are expected to include:
- Self-service functionality for taxpayers to access their MRT and to apply for tax exemptions.
- Invoices accessible through IRIS in a downloadable format and to reconcile MRT against mineral titles owned.
- Automation of eligibility criteria for exemption applications (e.g. agricultural and trust corporation exemptions) through IRIS and improve ministry response times.
Check back often as information will be updated as it becomes available. If you have questions about the new Mineral Rights Tax electronic system, contact Donna Wilson at 306-798-2133 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For all other questions, please contact the ER Service Desk.
April 10, 2021: Project Implementation - Automated Land Checks
The Integrated Resource Information System (IRIS) is now able to complete and provide immediate mineral ownership and potential restriction information to tenure applicants during the application phase of Oil and Gas Public Offerings and other non-advertised dispositions. Mineral ownership and restriction information is also available using the Ad Hoc Land Check Review found in the Infrastructure section of IRIS without going through the application process.
