Related content

New tax measures announced in Saskatchewan's 2019 budget are included in Saskatchewan Bill 171, which received Royal Assent on May 15, 2019. The measures announced in the province's budget to increase the potash production tax are included in "The Potash Production Tax Amendment Regulations, 2019", published in The Saskatchewan Gazette on May 10, 2019.

This regulation is effective April 1, 2019 and amends Saskatchewan's Mineral Taxation Act to eliminate:

  • The Saskatchewan Resource Credit for potash production
  • Taxpayer deductions for Crown and freehold royalties in determining the base payment or the profit tax component of the Potash Production Tax.

Bill 171 also introduces three non-refundable personal tax credits, effective as of January 1, 2020:

  • The Saskatchewan volunteer firefighter tax credit
  • The Saskatchewan volunteer emergency first responder tax credit
  • The Saskatchewan volunteer search and rescue tax credit.
