Assessment Appeals

After reviewing your assessment, if you feel an error has been made in your assessment or classification, you can appeal.

 You must file your appeal within 60 days of the assessment notice’s mailing and/or advertising.

This can be done in person, by submitting the below form or by regular or registered mail to:

The Assessor
City of Estevan
1102 Fourth Street
Estevan, SK, S4A 0W7


STEP ONE:
Contact SAMA

Obtain further information on your assessment & how these values were arrived at by contacting:

1. Tax Assessor 
City Hall
306-634-1811

2. Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA)
1-800-498-0575
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. However, if an appeal is successful, an adjustment will be made to your account, and the appeal fee will be refunded.


STEP TWO:
Complete and submit a Notice of Appeal

    Complete a notice of appeal in several ways:

    1. find the form on the backside of your assessment notice
    2. submit online here
    3. pick up a notice of appeal form at city hall 1102 4th Street
