Resident’s of the RM of Lumsden may be contacted by the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) in the coming weeks. SAMA’s inspectors will be starting property inspections as a part of the 2021 Revaluation.
The provincial government mandates SAMA to conduct periodic revaluations of all Saskatchewan properties every four years to coincide with the change to a new base date. The current revaluation was completed in 2017 using the 2015 base date. The next revaluation is to be done in 2021 using a 2019 base date.
When a revaluation is completed, SAMA provides new values for each property.
Provincial legislation requires municipalities to use these values when determining taxes.
Resident’s would have received notification and a survey from SAMA describing this process, for more information, visit SAMA’s website here: https://www.sama.sk.ca/
