Your Appeal Hearing

The Secretary of the Board of Revision will notify you in writing of the date, time and location of your hearing at least 30 days before your hearing. Postponements are only granted under exceptional circumstances.

At the hearing, the Board will hear your appeal and make a decision based on the facts presented.

Regular or simplified appeal process

The written material you provide for either process should identify why you feel there is an error in your assessment:

  • Regular appeal process Any written material and photographs you provide in support of your appeal must be submitted to BOTH the Secretary of the Board of Revision and the City Assessor at least 20 days before the date of your hearing.
  • Simplified appeal process If you qualify for a simplified appeal process and request it on your Notice of Appeal, you can provide any written material and photographs in support of your appeal to the Board of Revision and City Assessor at your hearing. You are eligible for the simplified appeal process if your appeal is for:
    • a single family residential property or residential condominium unit;
    • or any property that has a current fair value assessment of 250,000 or less.

To avoid delays at your hearing, you are encouraged to provide your material to BOTH the Secretary of the Board of Revision and the City Assessor at least 20 days before the date of your hearing.

Hearing transcripts

If you wish to have a recording made of your hearing, you must give the Secretary of the Board at least 2 days written notice before your appeal hearing. You are responsible for any recording or transcription fees.

At your appeal hearing

On the day of your hearing, the Board of Revision will hear appeals in the order they appear on the docket. You must address your comments to the Board through the Chairperson when presenting your arguments. You can have witnesses appear on your behalf.

After you present your arguments, you may be asked questions by the Assessor or the Board members. Then the Assessor has an opportunity to present information with respect to the property. At this time, you will have the opportunity to ask the Assessor questions.

When all evidence has been presented, both you and the Assessor may present final arguments to the Board.

The Board's decision

After the hearing, the Board will finalize their decision and send you notification of their decision by registered mail.

You or the City Assessor can appeal the Board's decision to the Saskatchewan Municipal Board Assessment Appeals Committee (SMBAAC) .
