Assessment/Property Tax


Every four years, Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) does a reassessment of all properties in the province. Property assessment is the process of determining a property’s assessed value for property tax purposes as of a specific date.

Assessed value is not market value. Assessed value is determined by applying the market valuation standard and the rules and procedures that are contained in The Municipalities Act, Saskatchewan Assessment Manual and, by following the appropriate statutes. Local governments use property assessments as a basis for the distribution of property taxes among property owners. Property assessment is not the same as property tax

Property owners will receive an Assessment Notice from the Town Administrator informing them of any changes in assessed value of $1,000 or more, or if there was an ownership change.
