Tooele residents may see substantial property tax increase
TOOELE, Utah — On Wednesday, KSL NewsRadio hosts Dave and Dujanovic spoke to Tooele County Assessor, Jake Parkinson about property tax bills. In recent weeks, Tooele County has been especially outspoken about the increase in property taxes.
Parkinson told the hosts that what homeowners are seeing is a historic increase in their market values due to demand by the free market.
Furthermore, he explained to the hosts that another factor in increasing property taxes is the number of organizations in need of more revenue.
Some residents may be eligible to appeal the hike, something Parkinson encouraged if a resident feels strongly about the topic of tax hikes.
Later, Rusty Cannon with the Utah Tax Association told Dave and Dujanovic that property tax increase are due to programs and groups “deciding to jump in the pool all at once.”
