Taxes & Assessment
2013 Property Tax Notices (Mailed Wednesday, July 24th, 2013).
2013 Property Assessment and Taxation
The Province of Saskatchewan underwent a complete revaluation of all property assessment values in 2013. A revaluation occurs every four years and is the provincially-mandated updating of all property values to reflect a more current date as property values change over time.
For 2013 the assessment appeal deadline has passed and the mill rates are finalized. You can find Assessment Notice and Appeal Guide here. The property tax notices have been mailed and this means that the 2013 Property Tax Levy cannot be appealed.
Municipal Property Tax
In response to the 2013 revaluation the R.M. Council established the 2013 property tax uniform mill rate at 6.00 mills, which is a reduction from the 2012 rate of 9.00 mills and the municipality will continue to utilize mill rate factors to manage the municipal property tax shifts between property classes.
Further information regarding Property Assessment and Taxation can be found on the Government of Saskatchewan website www.municipal.gov.sk.ca/publications or www.municipal.gov.sk.ca/Administration/Education-Tax-System
and on the SAMA (Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency) website www.sama.sk.ca. In 2009 SAMA introduced SAMAView on its website. Now anyone can do an on-line search for property assessment information in municipalities where assessment services are provided by SAMA.
