Once the taxable assessment is determined by SAMA, the Rural Municipality of South Qu’Appelle will determine and set the Mill Rate.
The following formula indicates how the municipal portion of the tax levy is derived:
Taxable Assessment x Mill Rate x Mill Rate Factor / 1,000 = Municipal Property Tax Amount
The R.M. offers the following discounts on early payments of Municipal Taxes:
- August = 5%
- September = 5%
- October = 4%
- November = 2%
- December = 0%
Each property is subject to School Taxes. The School Mill Rates are set by the Government of Saskatchewan.
If you do not pay your taxes by December 31st of the current year, the amount owing will be considered arrears and will be subject to interest and tax enforcement proceedings. Additional fees will be added to your taxes should your property be subject to tax enforcement.
