The City of Saskatoon collects property taxes on behalf of three taxing authorities: School Boards (Public and Separate), the City of Saskatoon and the Saskatoon Public Library. Each taxing authority establishes its annual budget and, after taking into consideration other sources of revenue, determines the total revenue required through taxation.
