Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Salt Lake County treasurer’s office has been limited in its efforts to promote the tax relief programs available to the residents and is therefore reminding residents of the approaching deadline for the programs. Application deadline is Sept. 1.
Property tax relief is available to certain military veterans, the legally blind in both eyes, those 66 years old and older with annual household income under $34,168 (known as the Circuit Breaker Program) and those of any age experiencing hardship or who are indigent, according to Shireen Ghorbani, countywide council member, and Treasurer K. Wayne Cushing.
“We know our residents are experiencing both financial and emotional stress on a scale we haven’t seen in a long time,” said Ghorbani. “And we want them to know that the county is here for them. Because the nature of the information required to process tax relief applications is highly sensitive, residents may be required to visit the Government Center and meet in-person with staff in the Treasurer’s Office.”
Details on filing for property tax relief is available by calling treasurer’s office at 385-468-8300.
