The main source of revenue for the Resort Village of Candle Lake comes from property taxes.
A base tax is added to the mill rate calculation to provide the total taxes for each property in the Resort Village. The mill rate is set by Council each year, and is calculated on the assessed value of your property. The total taxes received by the Resort Village are determined by the amount of funds that will be required to support the annual budget.
Property owners also pay for schools; the education mill rate is set by the province.
Property assessments/revaluations are conducted by the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA).
Property assessment can be appealed while the Rolls are open each year. If you have questions about your assessment, the appeal process, or for more information on the assessment process, please contact our SAMA representative Richard Jackson and (306) 920-7198 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
