Welcome to the Town of Herbert
A quiet, friendly community situated in the heart of Saskatchewan's wheat belt along the TransCanada Highway, 47 kms east of Swift Current. The town is fully serviced offering health, education, recreation and spiritual services while catering to a large surrounding agricultural area.
Due to the windy weather we've been experiencing of late, Town maintenance will make another round for branch pick-up next Wednesday.

We request that due to limited class sizes that only one session week is chosen per child, at a time. Fill out a new form indicating the desired session week if more weeks are necessary. All lesson groups are available for each session week.
You can also call the office to register until the opening of the pool. Once the pool is officially open, all registrations will need to be directed to the pool staff. Call 306-784-2417.
How Property Assessment Works in SK
Click on the highlighed link to view SAMA's informational pamphlet regarding: How Property Assessment Works in Saskatchewan. It clarifies SAMA's role in the assessment process.
Once the municipal assessment roll has been completed, homeowners are given the opportunity to appeal a property assessment. However, it's important to understand that the appeal process is about appealing an error in the assessed value of your property or classification of your property; homeowner's cannot appeal their tax levy.

Tax Enforcement - 2021 Arrears
Unfortunately, the Town has to take steps to ensure individual property taxes are kept in check & owners given the opportunity to amend their tax roll prior to the current year tax levy being rolled out, which will be June 1st of this year.
On April 1st, anyone with outstanding amounts received a statement from us outlining the total amount due. You'll have to call the office for the actual levy amount if you don't have the 2021 Tax Notice at hand. Essentially, 1/2 of the levy amount plus arrears (interest charges, etc.) must be paid by May 15th in order for your property not to be included in the tax enforement process. A call to the Town CAO, would not go amiss at this point & encourage those to do so if full payment isn't possible.
2022 Assessment Roll
Now is the time most municipalities are starting to prepare their 2022 assessment rolls. Remember all property must be assessed. If you have property within your municipality that does not have an assessed value, you will need to contact the Saskatchewan Assessment Management Agency (SAMA).
