Utah is probably best known for its thriving Mormon community but it’s also home to the largest salt lake in the western hemisphere (Salt Lake City). The Sundance Film Festival is also a huge draw for visitors. If you’re considering making Utah your state of residence, however, income taxes and property taxes are on the modest end, but sales taxes run above average.

Utah Income Tax

Utah has a flat income tax rate of 4.65% (down from 4.85% in 2022) for all income levels.

Who Must File?

Utah residents (full-year and part-year) are required to file a state income tax return if they are required to file a federal return. Non-residents with income from Utah sources who are required to file a federal tax return must also file a state return.

A taxpayer may be exempt from filing a Utah state income tax return if their federal adjusted gross income is less than their federal standard deduction.

Utah Sales Tax

Utah levies a state sales state rate of 4.85%, however, there is a mandatory 1% local sales tax and a .25% county option which makes the combined rate 6.1%. Additionally, local municipalities may add up to 2.95%. Although groceries are taxable, it is at a reduced rate of 3% (1.75% state tax plus 1.25% local/county taxes).

Utah Property Taxes

Utah’s property tax bills are fairly low compared to other parts of the country. Its median property tax bill is approximately $1,351 (based on a median home value of $224,700). Summit County has the highest property tax at an average of $1,921. The lowest amount is $422 in Rich County.
