Property Tax Notices Arriving

Property tax statements are arriving in mailboxes throughout the Basin with downturn in the economy reflected. Now is the time, says Duchesne County Commissioner Ron Winterton, for citizens to review their tax statements and come to the County with any questions or disputes they have. “The County has not raised taxes but because of the way taxes are assessed it shows an increase,” explains Winterton. “If you have a problem you have the right to come in and see how the Assessor’s office came up with the tax amounts. Anyone can set up an appointment with a hearings officer and in September the Board of Equalization meets.” This public process is applicable to all Counties and final tax statements go out by the end of the year.
