What is a mill rate?
The term "mill rate" can be described as the amount of tax that is paid per $1,000.00 of assessed property value. The City and school administration use the mill rate to calculate the amount of property tax that is required from each property to raise the revenue necessary to operate the City and schools for the current year.

The mill rate has two components - the municipal portion and the education portion. The municipal mill rate is established by City Council once the City of Lloydminster budget has been approved for the year. The provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan establish uniform mill rates for education and then work together to establish a uniform education mill rate for the City of Lloydminster. Additional mill rates for special requisitions are approved on a yearly basis.

The mill rate indicates the amount of tax you will pay for every $1,000.00 of assessment placed on your property.

For example - if the mill rate (municipal and school) is 12.5 mills-for every $1,000.00 of assessment you will pay $12.50 of taxes. Therefore, if you have property assessed @ $100,000 your tax bill would be $1,250.00.

Assessment X Mill rate / 1000 = Property tax amount
