Assessment & Taxation

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 toll 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. You can read the Assessment Appeal Guide for Citizens to learn more about the appeal process.

For further information regarding assessment visit the SAMA (Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency) website 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.
