What is the assessment appeals process?
Should there be an error on an assessment, it should be brought to the attention of the Municipality. The appeal can be sent to the firm that administers our Board of Revision:
Western Municipal Consulting
Box 149 Meota, SK
Who should appeal?
If you feel an error has been made on the assessment, you should seek clarification from SAMA or appeal. Too high is not considered a valid reason for an appeal. When submitting an appeal, provide all information supporting your claim. SAMA uses provincial rates, area specific, to apply the valuation and bring the values up to a approximately a 2019 valuation.
SAMAview provides the detail that SAMA found when valuing your property. After setting up an account (free of charge) you can view the information they have recorded and ensure that it is accurate.
Appeals (see review of assessment notice) may be emailed or mailed, providing the details of what you believe to be incorrect. The fee of $100 per appeal should be sent to the RM of Snipe Lake, Box 786, Eston, SK S0L 1A0 - cheques payable to the RM of Snipe Lake. The fee will be refunded if your appeal is successful.
