Taxes & Assessment
2016 Assessment Notices
2016 assessment notices have been mailed to all R.M. of Corman Park property owners. Due to the significant property assessment review and re-inspections that have occurred to several properties within the R.M. an opportunity is being provided to all taxpayers to review their assessment values and the impact it will have on their 2016 property tax levy.
Property assessment appeals may be initiated by any person with an interest in, or that is affected by, the assessed value or classification of any property. You can appeal if you believe there has been an error involving property valuation, property classification, and exemption, the contents of the assessment roll or the assessment notice; however there is no provision to appeal property taxes. A Notice of Appeal Form (PDF) is included with the assessment notice or is available at the municipal office.
Further information regarding Property Assessment and Taxation can be found on the Government of Saskatchewan Publications website, the Saskatchewan Education website, and on the SAMA (Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency) website. The Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) makes property assessment information available through their SAMA View application on-line in municipalities where they provide assessment services. With SAMA View you can verify your property assessment information; compare your assessment to similar or neighboring properties; and get a general idea of assessed values in your municipality.
Property assessment appeal deadline, on or before 5 p.m. May 16, 2016.
The Assessment Process & Its Relation to Taxes
SAMA will first determine an assessed value for properties. After that, a provincial government tax policy is applied. The policy multiplies a percentage formula against the assessed value, producing what is called the taxable value.
In 2009 SAMA introduced SAMAView on its website. Now anyone can do an online search for property assessment information in municipalities where assessment services are provided by SAMA.

The Final Taxable Value required for calculation is shown on the assessment notice for land and improvements by class. The effective Mill Rate required for calculating the municipal levy and school levy for each class are shown below.
