    It's Time to Invest in our City

    The proposed 109.49% is a large increase. Let's break down what this means to you.

    1- The increase only applies to the South Salt Lake line item

    2- This 109.49% increase is 22.32% of your total tax bill

    3- Comparing 2021 to 2022 = South Salt Lake’s share of your property taxes is proposed to increase by 9.24%, and these funds will stay in South Salt Lake.

     

    Bottom Line: South Salt Lake can't run today's city on yesterday's dollars
