Personal Property Tax - Online Payments

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

If I select electronic payment from my Checking Account, I authorize the Salt Lake County Assessor and/or any third party the County may designate to deduct funds from my check account to pay Salt Lake County property taxes and associated fees (if applicable) for the account(s) I select. I also authorize and understand that a convenience fee will be charged by the financial intermediary, Official Payments Corp., and that I can avoid paying a fee by remitting the payment by mail or paying in person in the Assessor's Office. The convenience fee for an electronic funds transfer is $1.25. I understand that post-dated payments are not accepted and that payment information may be submitted to my bank at any time. I understand that once I submit my payment information to the web site it will not be possible for the Assessor's Office or its bank to stop the transmission of payment information to my bank.

If I select payment by Credit Card or Debit Card, I authorize the Salt Lake County Treasurer and/or any third party the County may designate to charge my Credit Card or Debit Card account to pay Salt Lake County property taxes and additional charges together with associated Convenience Fees equal to 2.25% of the amount of taxes and additional charges paid for the parcel(s) I select. I understand that a 2.25% convenience fee is charged by a financial intermediary, Official Payments Corp., and that I can avoid paying a fee by remitting the payment by mail or paying in person in the Assessor's Office. I understand that I will see two charges on my Credit Card or Debit Card statement, one for the payment of property tax and another charge from Official Payments Corp. for the convenience fee. The amount charged for the convenience fee is 2.25% of the transaction amount or a minimum fee of $1.95, whichever is greater.

I understand that payments are considered to be made at the time the transaction is confirmed by this Web site and a confirmation number is issued. The confirmation page generated when I submit my payment will show the date and time the payment was received by Salt Lake County. This will be the official date and time of payment, and in the event that a submission occurs before the payment deadline but the confirmation occurs after the deadline, the payment will be considered late, including cases of equipment failure or transmission difficulties due to heavy traffic.

I will make every effort to ensure the accuracy of the account information I provide. I understand that any errors or omissions from my payment information may result in a delay that could cause my taxes to become delinquent and for amounts already delinquent to incur additional interest and fees as provided by law. In the event my payment is rejected I may not receive notice of this prior to the deadline for timely payment. Just as is the case with "paper" payments, I understand that in the event my payment is rejected for any reason (including but not limited to incorrect or incomplete account and bank information, insufficient funds, or account closure) I will not be allowed any additional time to make other payment arrangements without incurring penalties, interest and fees as provided by law.

Salt Lake County personal property taxes must be paid on or before the deadline for timely payment shown on the tax notice or interest will begin to accrue. Online payments do not satisfy the filing requirements as stated in UCA 59-2-307. Your signed statement of personal property must be physically submitted to the assessor in order to comply with the filing requirements and avoid non-filing penalties and fees. Please be advised, our web site may be occasionally unreachable due to file maintenance. Payment is effective only upon receipt (credit of funds by your bank). Payments of less than the full amount due including penalty will be applied first to outstanding fees, penalties and interest before application to the tax due. Whether my taxes are paid timely or delinquent, I understand that I have the right under UTAH CODE ANN. ยง 59-2-1327 to mark my payment "Paid Under Protest" to preserve my right to challenge the legality of the tax.
