Have you ever wondered how much your city government gets from its citizens?
In a recent study, the Utah Taxpayers Association answered just that question for the 50 largest cities in Utah. More specifically, they answered the question: "How much of each thousand dollars earned by a
citizen is consumed by the city government in Utah?"
This list counts down the 25 cities that receive the most per $1,000 earned by their citizens. Or, in other words, it shows which Utah cities are most expensive for those who live in them. The list also includes the revenue each city government gains from taxes and fees in total and per capita.
