Every August, cities and school districts in Utah (along with some special districts) have the opportunity to raise property taxes when adopting their budget for the upcoming year. For counties and the remaining special districts, this process happens in December. Thanks to Utah’s taxpayer friendly property tax system, when a taxing entity wishes to raise property taxes it must first hold a public hearing called Truth in Taxation (TnT). This gives citizens an opportunity to voice their opinion and forces transparency in the taxing process.
Your Utah Taxpayers Association always tracks the budgets of Utah’s major cities and all 41 school districts to monitor property tax changes. Below is a list of the entities that are pursuing property tax increases this fall. We will provide more detailed information as it becomes available.
