CFIB NEWS RELEASE
CFIB ranks best & worst property tax gaps in 32 Saskatchewan RMs
Eight RMs shared lowest municipal property tax gap in 2014; Mervin the highest
Regina, November 19, 2015 - The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) released its comparison of property tax gaps between 32 Saskatchewan Rural Municipalities (RMs) with a population of 1,000 or more and the results are concerning for business owners. The overall results for RMs in 2014 were mixed across the province. On average, small business owners paid 3 .86 times the municipal property taxes of residential property owners in 2014.
FIB's 8th annual research report, Wanted: Property Tax Fairness in Saskatchewan examines municipal and total property tax gaps for 69 municipalities and 32 Rural Municipalities (RMs) with a population of 1,000 or more. The gap measures the ratio of commercial and residential property tax bills for properties assessed at $200,000.
"The good news is some RMs do a better job than others in making municipal property taxes more fair for small businesses," said Marilyn Braun-Pollon, CFIB's Vice-President, Prairie and Agri-business. "However, the bad news is many Saskatchewan business owners continue to pay more than their fair share and get the shortend of the property tax stick."
In fact, commercial property owners in Saskatchewan's largest 32 RMs paid from $1.43 to $18.81 for every dollar in municipal property taxes paid by residential property owners, with an average of $3.86 (see Backgrounder).
Eight RMs shared the lowest municipal property tax gap; The RM of Mervin had the highest
- The lowest municipal property tax gap in 2014 was shared by eight RMs; Lumsden, Buckland, Prince Albert, South Qu'Appelle, Dundurn, Moose Jaw, Hudson Bay, and Battle River with a gap of 1.43
- The RM of Moose Jaw had the lowest commercial municipal property tax bill of $850
- The RM of Mervin had the highest municipal property tax gap of 18.81
- The RM of Wilton had the highest commercial municipal property tax bill of $15,400
When provincial education property taxes are factored in, commercial property owners in the largest 3 2 RMs are paying on average 3.03 times the property taxes of residential property owners.
This report should be required reading for all municipal leaders as they determine their 2016 operating budgets in the coming weeks. "We worry many RMs may continue to hike property taxes to fund unsustainable spending," added Braun-Pollon.
