The RM of Eyebrow uses the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) to calculate and update all assessments with the municipality. SAMA performs annual maintenance updates to properties showing an increase or decrease in assessment. Every four years full revaluations on all properties province wide are carried out. 2017 is a revaluation year. More information on SAMA and assessments can be found at http://www.sama.sk.ca
The Assessment Process and Its Relation to Taxes
SAMA’s role in determining assessed value for properties is just the first part of a process established by provincial legislation. The second part is the application of provincial government established tax policy, such as property classes, percentage of value, and statutory exemptions. The third and final part of the process involves a provincial education mill rate factor, and the local mill rate factor which is determined annually by the local municipalities based on local budget needs. They then multiply the taxable assessment by these mill rates to determine your property tax bill.
Calculating Taxable Assessments
SAMA first determines the assessed value for the property. 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.
Provincial Property Classes and Percentages of Value:
Property Class Taxable Percentage
(A) Agriculture 55%
(N) Non-arable (Range) 45%
(R) Residential 80%
(C) Commercial 100%
(E) Elevators 100%
(P) Railway 100%
Assessed Value X Percentage of Value & Exemptions X Local Mill Rate & Education Mill Rate = YOUR PROPERTY TAXES
