SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake County property owners will get their property tax notices in the mail this week as opposed to early November, which is normally when notices are mailed.
“During these tough economic times, an extra three weeks provides a little extra time for citizens to make any necessary arrangements,” said County Treasurer K. Wayne Cushing. This earlier mailing date also provides additional time for the treasurer’s office to receive returned notices from the post office, research corrected addresses, and forward them to taxpayers in a timely manner, he said.
Even though the county has not raised taxes for nearly a decade and it has experienced budget and staff reductions for years, collections continue to increase amounting to $28 million in 2012 and a $150 million increase since 2009.
This growth is due to county population increase as well as non-county entities adjusting rates to absorb the expansion.
