Property Taxes

Tax Administration

Municipalities rely on property taxes as a major source of revenue to fund protective services, engineering services, roads, administration, parks / recreation, and culture. Proper administration of the tax system fairly distributes the costs of local services and programs throughout the municipality.

The City of Warman is responsible for collecting provincial education tax from Warman property owners on behalf of the provincial government.

Determining Property Taxes

To determine property tax, the taxable assessment provided by Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) is multiplied by the mill rates set each year. The municipal mill rate is determined based on the annual budget after considering all other sources of revenue.

Municipalities may also apply mill rate factors and/or adopt a minimum or base tax. The education mill rate is established by the province. Separate school divisions may elect to retain authority to establish their own mill rate.

Taxable assessment X local mill rate(s) X mill rate factor (if applicable) plus minimum or base taxes = property taxes

i.e: Residential Property with a taxable assessment of 200,000
Municipal Taxes = 200,000 (taxable assessment) X .00566 (mill rate)
plus $525 (base tax) = $1,657
School Taxes = $200,000 (taxable assessment) X .00412 (mill rate)
= $824.00
Total Taxes = $2481.00
