Tax Exemption Guide

The Salt Lake County Auditor’s Office has designed a public web Portal to facilitate the Property Tax Exemption application and annual renewal process. The portal should be used by organizations to apply for and maintain Property Tax Exempt status based on charitable, educational, or religious use.

Existing Users

If your organization already has a tax exemption, you do not need to create a new application.

The process for existing users is:

  • Create your organization's new user account on the Public Portal. Be sure to use the email address that is already associated with your organization.
  • When your user account has been created, confirm that you can log in to the Portal with your new account.
  • Click in to the CRE application on the Portal and Continue past the explanatory disclaimer (Tax Exempt Applications).
  • Confirm that your Organization's information is  showing up in the CRE module, and that all the information is  correct.

If you have any problem with  these initial steps, please contact Terrie Sherbon at or (385) 468-7226

Once you have verified the above information, the next step is to wait for the Renewal period to begin in the new tax year.

You will be sent your Renewal Notice via email when it is time to return to the Portal and file for your Organization's exemption renewal.
