Regina, October 18, 2013 – The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) released its annual comparison of property tax gaps between Saskatchewan’s residential and commercial property owners. CFIB’s report reveals very little progress has been made in narrowing the municipal property tax gaps from 2011 levels. On average, in 2012 small business owners across Saskatchewan paid 2.14 times the municipal property taxes of residential property owners, down from 2.18 in 2011.
However, the good news is that Langenburg is the lowest in Central East!
· Langenburg has the lowest municipal property tax gap of 1.30 (2nd year in a row); Canora 2nd lowest at 1.43
