Locally Assessed Property

The Property Tax Division assists counties in the assessment and administration of locally assessed property. Additionally, the division also administers the Utah Farmland Assessment Act, also called the FAA or the Greenbelt Act, which allows qualifying agricultural property to be assessed and taxed based upon its productive capability instead of the prevailing market value.
