Over the next six weeks, around 78 taxing entities throughout Utah will hold public Truth in Taxation hearings to justify their proposed budget increases. This gold-standard property tax law, pioneered in Utah and replicated across the nation, facilitates transparency and provides an effective check on government spending. Unlike in many other states, taxing entities in Utah do not receive an automatic revenue windfall simply because of an increase in property values.
Proposed hikes in 2023 range from as low as 0.44% in West Valley City to 29% in Farmington to 198% in the city of Goshen.
There are approximately 78 entities raising taxes in 2023, with fewer cities and special districts than last year (about 90 last year), however this still represents a significant uptick from the typical range of about 60.
We have compiled a list of all of the cities and special districts which are so far proposing tax hikes in 2023. The complete list can be viewed below. You can also download the list as a PDF or as an Excel file.
