Understanding Utah Property Taxes

Overview of Utah Taxes

Utah collects a total of $26,112,683,000 in revenue every year. Of that, $3,208,502,000 comes from property taxes, or 12.3% of total revenue. As a result, Utah has the 39th highest property tax rate in the country, which is 37.1% less than the national average of 1.06%. Generally speaking, states where property taxes make up a higher percentage of total state revenue have higher property tax rates, and states where property taxes make up a smaller percentage of state revenue have lower property tax rates.

How does this translate to what homeowners actually pay? The average home value across Utah is $249,230, meaning the average Utah homeowner pays 0.67% of their home value every year in property taxes, or $6.70 for every $1,000 in home value.

Property Tax Calendar

Utah's property tax system is governed by state statute, which means that despite significant variation in what homeowners in different parts of Utah, there are important constants. Utah's assessment date, which is both the point in time when the owner of a property is liable for property tax and the point in time at the property's value is determined, is January 1. Utah property tax appeals, which allow homeowners to contest the assessment, starts September 15 of current year or 45 days of notice. The date which property tax bills become due on is November 30.
