EQUALIZATION PROCESS

Valuation notices are mailed out the latter part of July to property owners. The Valuation notice will be sent to the owner of record as of January 1st of the current year. If you do not receive yours, you may print a copy of your Valuation notice. The Valuation notice shows an estimated tax based on the estimated tax rate. If you disagree with the market value the County assessed your property, please fill out and send in the Appeal Form that was mailed with your valuation notice along with documentation supporting the value you are requesting. If you did not receive your notice, you may print out the appeal form.


Appeal Forms and accompanying documentation must be filed by 5:00 pm, September 16, 2013.


Documentation supporting value of property may include :

  • Closing Statement,
  • A recent appraisal (can be up to one year old from January 1st of the current year),
  • Comparable sold properties within the general area.

The documentation should :

  1. Demonstrate that the value placed by the assessor on your property is wrong.
  2. Show what the value should be.

Once your documentation has been reviewed, the information will be presented to the County Board of Equalization/our County Commissioners. They will review all the information and make the final decision.

A decision letter will be sent to you. If you disagree with the Board of Equalization decision you may appeal further and go before a hearing officer. If, after you receive the decision from the hearing officer, you disagree with his/her decision, you will still have the opportunity to appeal to the Utah State Tax Commission. At your request we will process those and send them to the State.

The County Board of Equalization can only decide if a property is correctly or incorrectly valued. If you feel that your property would sell for the amount stated by the assessor, but you feel that your taxes are too high, you should discuss your concerns with your legislators and with your taxing entities. (Cities, School Districts, Water Districts, etc.)
