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 will be a revaluation year.
More information on SAMA and assessments can be found at http://www.sama.sk.ca
Online search for property assessment information in municipalities where assessment services are provided by SAMA can be found on SAMAVIEW at http://samaview.sama.sk.ca/sama
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) 40%
(R) Residential 70%
(C) Commercial 100%
(E) Elevators 100%
(P) Railway 100%
