The Assessor's Office duties, as set forth by statute, require the Assessor to establish a market value for all property subject to property tax. There are two types of property the assessor's office must establish market value for:
Personal Property: includes all equipment used to operate a business; this includes all owned, leased, and rented equipment
Real Property: includes all residential, commercial, agricultural, and vacant land
Our goal is to perform these duties as accurately, fairly, and efficiently as possible while complying with all laws and statutes of the State of Utah.
The Assessor's Office is not responsible for taxes. The Assessor's Office does not set Tax Rates. The various taxing entities within each tax district set the tax rate based on their annual budget. The sum of these rates is called the overall tax rate or mill levy.
