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 .00574 (mill rate)
plus $530 (base tax) = $1,678
School Taxes = $200,000 (taxable assessment) X .00412 (mill rate)
= $824.00
Total Taxes = $2502.00


SAMA and the 2021 Revaluation



SAMA conducts revaluations based on a four-year cycle. The last revaluation took place in 2017. Assessments in Saskatchewan are retrospective. The 2021 revaluation will see assessed values updated to reflect a new base date of January 1, 2019, meaning between 2021 to 2024 property values are reflective of the market conditions as of this base date.

Property owners will receive final assessed values in the mail. SAMA will have the 2021 revaluation information on its website (www.sama.sk.ca).
