- Abstract: These datasets are related to taxation in Utah. They were created by the Utah State Tax Commission (USTC) and other local government agencies.
The following data is available for download:
Economy.SalesTaxAreas contains the approximate boundaries of Sales Tax Collection Areas in Utah. Sales Tax Areas are formed by municipality boundaries, special sales tax districts and the unincorporated areas of counties not in a special sales tax district.
- Updated 3/8/2018 1st Quarter 2018
Economy.TaxAreas2016 contains the set of taxing areas formed by each unique 2-dimensional intersection of incorporated taxing entities in Utah. Each taxing area represents at least a county and school district as members of these two categories cover the entire state. The property tax levy rate within a tax area should be the same for a specified property type within that area.
Transit sales tax areas are generally areas outside of incorporated municipalities where additional sales tax is collected to support transit activities (generally buses).
