SAMA Inspections Happening Now

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.

Revaluations

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/
