Education Property Tax System

The education property tax system (EPT) was redesigned and property taxes lowered significantly in 2008-09. As part of that redesign, the government committed to a 60/40 split for the funding of education - 60 per cent coming from the government’s grants and 40 per cent from EPT.

Beginning January 2018, EPT collected by municipalities is now paid to the provincial government’s General Revenue Fund instead of to school divisions. The change responds to requests from the Saskatchewan School Boards Association and school divisions to wrap up their involvement in property tax. This change will have no impact on individual ratepayers.

Separate school divisions have a right to levy taxes in order to fund their educational system. Each separate school division decides whether to establish its own property tax mill rates or to participate in the provincial funding structure. Municipalities with a separate school division that has set its own mill rates will continue sending payments to the separate school division.
