Few Utah cities raise property taxes
SALT LAKE CITY
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) _ Fewer than three dozen of the state's more
than 500 local governments raised property taxes this year.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that only 28 cities, counties,
school districts and other local governments chose to go through
the truth-in-taxation process to raise their overall property-tax
That is half the number that boosted them last year, and is down
from the 81 that did so in 2008.
Local governments recently finalized their tax rates in
preparation of mailing property tax notices by Nov. 1. Payment of
those taxes is due by Nov. 30.
