In person at the Treasurer’s Office, 60 N. Main Street in Coalville (offices closed Nov. 28-29 for Thanksgiving)

 

Residents can also sign up to make installments on next year’s property taxes through the county’s EZPay program, which allows monthly payments to be withdrawn from a bank account.

Utah state law requires the penalty for delinquent taxes to be 2.5 percent (or $10, whichever is greater). However, that penalty is reduced to 1 percent if all of the delinquent taxes for 2013 and the 1 percent penalty are paid on or before Jan. 31, 2014. Interest will be charged after that date, effective Jan. 1.

Online copies of property tax statements can be accessed from the Treasurer’s website. For questions, call 435-336-3267 or e-mail treasurer@summitcounty.org .

On-street parking restrictions

On-street parking on Summit County roads is prohibited from Nov. 15 to April 15, 2014. According to county ordinance, any vehicles or other obstacles that interfere with snow removal operations will be towed or moved at the owner’s expense.

The county will not assume any liability for damaged vehicles that are parked on county roads, and any costs for damages sustained by snow removal vehicles that hit illegally parked vehicles will be the responsibility of the vehicle’s owner.

Snow that is cleared from private properties cannot be placed within a public right-of-way in a manner that obstructs the safety of traffic. A warning or citation can be issued to anyone who violates this ordinance.

Developers are requesting special exceptions from county code such as decreased structure setbacks and increased road grades. For more information on the project, visit summitcounty.org.
