2017 Assessment Notices


2017 Assessment Revaluation

The province of Saskatchewan underwent a complete revaluation of all property assessment values for 2017. As a result an assessment notice is being mailed to all property owners. 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 in the valuation, the classification, to 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.

Calculating Your Estimated 2017 Property Tax Levy

To assist with estimating your total 2017 property tax levy we have provided the following illustrated example calculating the education property tax and municipal property tax for each of 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.


Education Property Tax Calculation


Tax Class Taxable Value  X Effective Mill Rate  = Levy
 A & N  50,000  x  1.43 / 1000  = $71.50
 R & M & S  50,000
 x  4.12 / 1000  = $206.00
 C & E & P  50,000
 x  6.27 / 1000  = $313.50

Municipal Property Tax Calculation

Tax Class Taxable Value  X Effective Mill Rate  = Levy
A & N 50,000 x 5.98 / 1000 = $299.00
R & M & S 50,000
x 4.00 / 1000 = $200.00
C & E & P 50,000
x 5.06 / 1000 = $253.00
