Calculations for Taxation:   


Taxable Assessment   X   0.001   X    Mill Rate   X   Mill Rate Factor   +    Base Tax                                                                                        = Municipal Taxes   +   Base for Hospital    or    Minimum $1,270   +   Base for Hospital.



Taxable Assessment   X   0.001   X    Mill Rate   =   School Taxes

*Vacant commercial lots are charged a reduced $ 500.00 Base Tax.

** Base for Hospital,  the Town belongs to the Twin Rivers Group (Duck Lake, Rosthern, Waldheim, Hepburn, Hague, RMs of Duck Lake, Rosthern and Laird),  and the group has been levying a Hospital Base Tax since 2015.  The Twin Rivers group is responsible for 20% of the costs of a new hospital. Funds levied to date are in Town Reserves, which will be allocated once a new hospital for Rosthern is announced by the Provincial Government – we are hopeful to hear an announcement shortly!
