2020 Assessment Notices

UPDATE: THE DEADLINE FOR ASSESSMENT APPEAL HAS PASSED FOR 2020

The 2020 assessment notices have been mailed to all R.M. of Dundurn property owners.  Property assessment appeals may be initiated by any person with an interest in, or that is affected by, the assessed value or classification of any property. You can appeal if you believe there has been an error involving property valuation, property classification, and exemption, the contents of the assessment roll or the assessment notice; however there is no provision to appeal property taxes. A notice of appeal form is included with the assessment notice or is available at the municipal office or on our website. www.dundurnrm.com

 For further information regarding assessment visit the SAMA (Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency) website www.sama.sk.ca.  On the website on-line searches can be conducted for any property assessment in municipalities where assessment services are provided by SAMA. 

The Assessment Process and Its Relation to Taxes 

SAMA will first determine an assessed value for properties.  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.
