ASSESSMENT

The Saskatchewan Assessement Management Agency (SAMA) is an independent agency that provides assessment valuations which is how tax rates are calculated. Search and view your property's assessment by conducting a property search online on SAMAView.


All Saskatchewan properties are assessed at mass market value as defined in the municipal act, not individual property sales price value. The calculations used to determine mass market value are based on the formulas, rules, and regulations set out by Provincial legislation and in the Saskatchewan Assessment Manual and best practices.

Market value assessments are determined by reconciling all three approaches to value: Cost, Direct Comparison, and Income Approach (where applicable), to determine an aggregate value to all property. Assessors evaluate properties based on a number of variables to determine the value assessment. These variables include, but are not limited to:

  • lot size
  • building size
  • construction quality
  • location
  • age of the building
