Finance > Assessment > How do I appeal my assessment?
If you disagree with your assessed values, you can appeal the assessment. Remember, a property assessment appeal is NOT about the level of taxation. With an appeal, the Board of Revision is only concerned with whether or not the value of your property was determined correctly, fairly, and in accordance with the procedures, formulas, rules and principles as found in the Saskatchewan Assessment Manual.
The applicable forms to use for an appeal are attached to the assessment notice that has been sent to you. If you do not have the appropriate form, they are available at City Hall.
You can appeal against one of the following four:
Assessment valuation (value of the land, value of the improvements (buildings), or both)
Assessment classification (land classification, or improvement classification, or both classifications)
Errors in the content or preparation of the assessment roll
Errors in the content or preparation of the assessment notice
The proper appeal form is filled out and filed with the Secretary of the Board of Revision (Jon Michaud) at City Hall by the due date. The due dates are either 30 days after the mailing of the assessment notices or the date published in the paper.
The date in which the appeals must be received by the Finance Department (Secretary to the Board of Revision) at City Hall for the 2008 taxation year is Monday June 30, 2008 at 1:00 p.m.
Local Board of Revision
The City of Weyburn is required to establish a Board of Revision to hear appeals. The Board of Revision is appointed by City Council but is not comprised of Council members. For the 2008 taxation year, Krismer and Associates from Regina will serve as the Board of Appeal.
Every property owner has a right to appeal his or her property assessment. However, only valid appeals as per the appeals form will be heard by the Board of Revision. Appeal forms must be accompanied by the appeal fee ($25.00 for residential appeals and $50.00 for commercial appeals) that will be refunded if your appeal is successful.
Valid appeals will be informed when the sitting of the Board of Revision will take place.
