*Utah State Law provides municipalities to receive at least the same amount of revenue from property taxes as they did the previous year. In other words, if market values decrease across the board (i.e. from a recession), then property tax rates will “self-adjust” to enable governments to receive the same amount of revenue. So, the city’s rate may in fact rise so that the city will not see a dip in revenues from property taxes due to the depressed market value of homes. The same is true if market values increase – the rate would actually decrease so that the city still receives the same amount of revenue. There are variables, such as new growth, that may cause this to change.
Total sales tax rate is 7.15%.
In addition to tax revenues, Eagle Mountain City may collect fees to cover the cost of various services.
