After review of your assessment, if you feel an error has been made in your assessment or classification, you can appeal. An appeal form is enclosed with the assessment notice. You must file your appeal within 30 days of the mailing and/or advertising of the assessment notice. This can be done in person, or by regular or registered mail to: The Assessor, City of Estevan, 1102 Fourth Street, Estevan, SK, S4A 0W7.
The flowing steps are required to file an appeal:
- Contact SAMA
Obtain further information on your assessment & how these values were arrived at by contacting the Tax Assessor at City Hall at 306-634-1811, or call SAMA directly at 1-800-498-0575, or visit the www.sama.sk.ca
After discussing your assessment with the Tax Assessor and/or SAMA and you still believe there is an error you can file an appeal.
Please keep in mind
- Only your property assessment can be appealed, not taxes or mill rates. Appeals cannot be based on the fact that you feel your taxes are too high. The grounds for appeal must be detailed. It is your responsibility to make a case to the board of revision.
- An appeal against your assessment value does not exempt you from paying taxes on time or from late payment penalties. If an appeal is successful, an adjustment will be made to your account and the appeal fee will be refunded.
