Public Hearing – Proposed Property Tax Increase

July 27, 2023

Public Hearing on Proposed Property Tax Increase – August 9, 2023 at 6pm

The Town of Alta is proposing to increase its property tax revenue from $243k to $400k by increasing its tax rate.  The Town of Alta tax on a $1,894,000 residence with a residential exemption would increase from $661.48 to $1,086.49, which is $425.01 per year.  The Town of Alta tax on a $1,894,000 business (or property without a residential exemption) would increase from $1,202.69 to $1,975.44, which is $772.75 per year.  The Town is required to go through a “Truth in Taxation” process to increase the tax rate.  The truth in taxation process encourages transparency and provides an opportunity for the public to comment on the proposal.  A public hearing will be held Wednesday, August 9th at 6pm (regular Town Council meeting starts at 4:30pm).  After the public hearing, the Alta Town Council will vote on the proposed tax rate and FY24 Budget.
