There are 2 principle factors that determine the amount of property tax.
1. Assessment - Market Value of your property based on 2 years prior. The assessment is determined by the Provincial Assessment Office. (Information on assessment can be obtained here.) (Click here for Farm Use Assessments)
2. Mill Rate - Determined by the Rural Municipality when the current year's budget is developed.
Each year Council for the Municipality develops a budget which outlines the financial plan for the current year. This budget is derived from costs of running the municipality and is divided into the municipalities assessment which generates a mill rate. The mill rate is then applied against the assessment for each individual property which determines the level of tax to be levied on each property.
Each individual School Division determines their own mill rate that they will charge property owners. The Municipality is responsible for collecting this money and then remitting it to the School Division in accordance with provincial legislation. For questions regarding school taxes contact your local school division office.
