Frequently Asked Questions for the Assessor
Assessor Office FAQs
Q: Why are taxes so high?
A: Daggett County has the third lowest property tax in the state. Many property owners in Daggett County own other property as their primary residence and therefore pay a higher percentage of their assessed tax on their secondary home.
Q: Why did my property taxes go up when the tax rate went down?
A: Utah has a policy of cyclical reappraisal, which requires property values to be re-evaluated at least every five years. As property values increase the drop in rates may not be enough to keep the net tax amount at the same level.
