According to the Riverton service area, 2017 property taxes for law enforcement will still be paid to the Salt Lake service area. The tax on an average home valuation of $310,702 will be $347.07, and the Salt Lake service area has approved an additional 5 percent tax increase for 2018.

The Riverton service area anticipates a 2018 property tax rate equal to the 2016 Salt Lake service area tax rate. Tax on a $310,702 residence would be $328.61. Tax on a business with that valuation would be $597.48. The 2017 Salt Lake service area tax on a home with that valuation is $347.07.
