Notice to Include 2017 Rates and Proposed 2018 Rates
Coalville, UT (October 30, 2017) – The Summit County Treasurer’s Office will mail property tax notices on Tuesday, October 31st, expected to arrive in homes/businesses as early as Wednesday, November 1st. The notices will look different from those of recent years and include one new Taxing Entity line item.
“The Charter School Levy will be a new line for taxpayers. It is not a new tax, but rather a Levy authorized by the Utah State Legislature to show transparency in how charter schools receive funding,” said Summit County Treasurer Corrie Forsling.
In the past, a portion of the school district’s tax revenues were used to fund charter schools, but taxpayers were not informed of this. Now the school district’s tax rate is reduced and the Charter School Levy is a separate line item on your tax bill. A sample property tax notice can be viewed here: www.summitcounty.org/treasurer.
Taxpayers will also find an insert in their bill that outlines 2018 figures under the County’s proposed Truth in Taxation increase.
“The increase in property tax revenues proposed by the County Manager would generate $4.1 million to be distributed between the General and Municipal Funds,” said County Treasurer Corrie Forsling. “Even though the Council is considering the increase right now, it would not impact taxpayers until next November.”
Residents are encouraged to attend a budget hearing and learn more about the truth in taxation process during one of two upcoming public hearings. Those dates are set for December 6, 2017 at the Richins Building in the Kimball Junction area and December 13, 2017 at the county courthouse in Coalville. These meetings will begin at 6:00 pm.
