As you may have noticed on your individual property tax notice, it is comprised of several taxpayer service entities that support your geographic area. In order to fund the taxpayer service provider's budgets, each entity receives revenue from property tax collections.
By statute, the Treasurer is an independent elected official because our customers span all of Salt Lake County. These customers include all property taxpayers and the 71 entities that provide taxpayer services across all of Salt Lake County. The Treasurer is the focal point intersection for collecting and then distributing the over $1 billion for taxpayer services. An interesting side note is that SLCo operations make up only ten (10) of those countywide entities.
