Education Property Tax
Financing the public education system in Saskatchewan is a shared responsibility between the provincial government and boards of education.
For general information on local assessment and taxation please refer to Ministry of Municipal Affairs at http://www.municipal.gov.sk.ca .
2013 - Education property tax mill rates can be found on the Ministry of Government relations website.
2012 - Education property tax mill rates will remain at the 2011 rate.
2011 - Education Property Tax will be reduced by $55.6 million, fulfilling Government's promise to provide Education Property Tax relief. The mill rates have been set at 3.91 mills for agriculture, 9.51 mills for residential, 12.25 mills for commercial property tier 1, 14.75 mills for commercial property tier 2, and 18.55 mills for commercial property tier 3.
2010 - The lower-than-expected potash revenues meant that difficult decisions were needed in this year's budget. Due to budget restraints, education property tax cuts are not possible in 2010. The 2010 rates for each property class will remain at the 2009 levels.
