If you have a mortgage on your property, and your mortgage company is responsible to pay property taxes on your behalf, the notification of taxes due is sent to the mortgage company.
The mill rate has two components - the municipal portion and the education portion. The municipal mill rate is established by Town Council once the Town of Biggar budget has been approved for the year. The Province of Saskatchewan establish uniform mill rates for education and then work together to establish a uniform education mill rate for the Town of Biggar. Additional mill rates for special requisitions are approved on a yearly basis.
The mill rate indicates the amount of tax you will pay for every $1,000.00 of assessment placed on your property.
For example - if the mill rate (municipal and school) is 12.5 mills-for every $1,000.00 of assessment you will pay $12.50 of taxes. Therefore, if you have property assessed at $100,000 your tax bill would be $1,250.00.
Assessment X Mill rate / 1000 = Property tax amount
A school support declaration can be provided to the Town of Biggar at any time, but it will not become effective until the following year the declaration was signed.
