The Utah Taxpayers Association has released the 2021 Cost of County Government Report that measures the tax and fee burden taxpayers face in each of the 29 counties in Utah. The report shows how much revenue each county collects in taxes and fees per resident. The report is useful in comparing different counties and indicates the level of fiscal restraint exercised by elected officials.
On a per capita basis, using data from 2020, the county with the lowest tax burden in Utah was Washington County, followed by Cache, Sanpete, Iron and Utah Counties as the second to fifth lowest. The county with the highest tax burden was Daggett County, followed by Kane, Garfield, Grand and Summit counties and the second to fifth highest.
