What is an Assessment Appraiser?
Assessment appraisers estimate assessed value on all types of property including residential, commercial, industrial, oil/gas pipelines, mines and farmland. Every person who owns property in Saskatchewan is impacted by the assessment placed on it by one of our members. Assessment appraisers must consistently work to ensure that property assessments are determined equitably pursuant to provincial legislation.
Assessment appraisers work for all levels of government, the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA), private consulting and assessment firms. They work in various valuation, management and administration positions. The Court of law also recognize assessment appraisers as experts and reinforce that the assessor is the backbone of local tax administration.
