Assessment Notice & Appeal Guide

Note: The closing date for appeals is May 16, 2016.
Enclosed with this guide is the Assessment Notice stating your property assessment. The Assessment Notice is the official notice of the assessed value of your property as determined by Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA). This notice and time-frame is the only opportunity for appealing assessments during the year. SAMA makes every effort to ensure property assessments are done fairly and accurately. However, if you feel that an error has occurred, we will help you review your assessment. If you disagree with the property value established by SAMA, there is a formal appeal process available to you.

How to Know if the Assessed Value of Your Property is Correct
Perhaps the best way to check your assessment is to compare it with homes or properties that you feel are similar to your property. Where possible the Municipality will make available comparative information used to arrive at the assessed value of the property - as long as this information is not considered private or confidential in nature.

What to do if You Have Concerns About Your Property Assessment
Your first step should be to find out how your property was assessed. You can contact SAMA directly in Saskatoon at 306-933-5385 or 800-667-5203 or make an appointment at an open house to be held in the municipal office on the following dates:
Open House Schedule at RM Office
 Thursday, April 28, 2016
1-7 p.m.
111 Pinehouse Drive
Saskatoon, SK S7K 5W1

An appraiser from SAMA will be available to discuss your assessment with you. Please phone for an appointment at 306-242-9303. You may also examine the assessment roll at the Municipal office any time during working hours until the appeal deadline of May 16, 2016.

Appealing the Decision of the Board of Revision
If you are not satisfied with the decision of the Board of Revision, the appeal can be taken to the Assessment Appeal Committee. The secretary of the Board of Revision will provide appeal information with your appeal decision.
