Taxes & Assessment


2018 Assessment Notices

For 2018 assessment notices have been mailed to all R.M. of Corman Park property owners.  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 is included with the assessment notice or is available at the municipal office or on our website:  www.rmcormanpark.ca

For further information regarding assessment visit the SAMA (Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency) website www.sama.sk.ca.  On the website on-line searches can be conducted for any property assessment in municipalities where assessment services are provided by SAMA.

The Assessment Process and 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.


            Provincial Property Classes and Percentages of Value

(A) Agriculture 55% (P) Railway 100%
(N) Non-arable (Range) 45%  (R) Residential 80% 
(B) Commercial 100% (M) Multi-unit 80% 
(E) Elevators 100% (S) Seasonal 80% 


2018 Municipal Mill Rate

The R.M. of Corman Park Council has not established the 2018 mill rates so we are unable to provide information that would assist with the calculation of the 2018 property tax levy.  Once the mill rate is finalized further information will be made available on the RM website.  The 2018 Tax Notices will be mailed Mid July, with payment to be received by RM office prior to 5pm December 31, 2018.

2018 Education Property Tax Mill Rates

For 2018 the Prairie Spirit (Public) School Division #206 and the St. Paul’s R.C.S.S.D. #20 Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools are both expected to use the education property tax mill rate established by the province as follows:

  • 1.43 mills for agricultural property classes
  • 4.12 mills for residential, seasonal & multi-unit property classes
  • 6.27 mills for commercial/industrial property classes;
  • 9.28 mills for resource(oil and gas, mines and pipelines)

Calculating Your Estimated 2018 Municipal & Education Property Tax

To assist with estimating your 2018 property tax levy we have illustrated examples for the different property tax classes. The mill rate used to calculate the public and separate education property tax is the same.

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.  Municipal Mill Rate used is based on 2017, which is subject to change once 2018 Mill Rates are established.


Tax Class Taxable Value  X Effective Mill Rate  = Levy  
 A & N  100,000  x  5.98 / 1000  = $598.00 Municipal 
 A & N 100,000  x  1.43 / 1000  = $143.00  Education Tax


 Tax Class Taxable Value X Effective Mill Rate =  Levy  
 R & M & S 100,000 X  4.00/1000 = 400.00 Municipal
R & M & S 100,000 X 4.12/1000 = 412.00 Educational Tax


Tax Class  Taxable Value X Effective Mill Rate = Levy  
 C & E & P 100,000 X 5.06/1000 = 506.00 Municipal
C & E & P 100,000 X 6.27/1000 = 627.00 Educational Tax
