A Proposed New Method of Assessing Land for Tax Purposes
By T. H. Freeman, Director of Assessments for Saskatchewan
‘As a preface to the subject, it might be advisable to review very briefly the methods used in the past for assessing grazing land or what is technically described as Land Class 1.
In 1939 a systematic re-assessment of all rural land in the province was undertaken. The then existing assessment of Land Class 1, or land adapted to grazing, carried an assessment of $7.00 to as high as $15.00 per care, a value far beyond the actual long-term paying ability of the land.’
