About the SATC

The Saskatchewan Affordability Tax Credit (SATC) program offers a one-time $500 payment to all eligible Saskatchewan residents to help address inflationary pressures and the resulting impact on the cost of living. The SATC is a refundable, non-taxable tax credit that will be delivered outside of the tax system to expedite payments to all eligible recipients.

The SATC is administered by the Ministry of Finance.

Payment Information

  • The SATC is a one-time payment of $500 to all eligible Saskatchewan residents regardless of their level of income or if they receive social assistance benefits from the Government of Saskatchewan.
