Assessments

Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA) is responsible for providing municipalities in Saskatchewan with the assessed values of land and improvements (buildings) in order for the municipality to calculate property taxes.

2021 is legislated as a Revaluation year and assessed values of all property are expected to change.

The Province has also announced a change in the Property Tax Percentages of Value.

Please find some helpful information sheets below, supplied by SAMA.

Assessment Exemptions

If you occupy a dwelling in the RM of Lumsden, you may qualify for an exemption to reduce all or a portion of the taxable assessment on your principal dwelling, as per section 293 of The Municipalities Act. Dwellings located within hamlets are excluded.

The total taxable assessment of any agricultural land you own or lease located within the RM of Lumsden or in adjoining rural municipality can be applied to reduce your residential taxable assessment. An assessment can only be used to reduce residential taxable assessment on one dwelling.

An affidavit listing land owned or leased within the municipality or adjoining municipalities must be completed and returned to the assessor prior to March 31 of the tax year to receive the exemption. This form is available below.
