Pay online with an eCheck or credit/debit card through Instant Payments. eChecks are free during tax season (Oct 15th - Dec 15th), the rest of the year there is a 49 cent fee charged by Instant Payments for each eCheck payment. Credit or debit card payments have a 2.5% fee ($2.50 minimum). A separate payment is needed for each parcel. Grand County receives no part of the fees which are collected by Instant Payments and which cover the cost of accepting credit/debit cards and eChecks.

Utah law allows for a 45% reduction in the value of a person’s primary residence. This is called the primary residential exemption and applies to properties that are owner or tenant occupied. If you believe you should be receiving the primary residential exemption you can apply for it through the Assessor’s office.
The Grand County Assessor establishes a value for all property located in the County. The Valuation Notice you received from the Clerk/Auditor reports this value to you. Because this value determines the eventual tax amount that will be due November 30th, it is important that the information on this Notice is accurate. If you disagree with the market value of your real property, you have the opportunity to appear before the Grand County Board of Equalization. You and an appraiser from the Assessor’s Office will be given the opportunity to present evidence to support their opinion of the property value. A second unbiased appraiser, hired by the County Council, will weigh the evidence and make a recommendation to the Council which serves as the County Board of Equalization. The deadline for appealing your property valuation is September 15th each year. More information on this process can be found on the Notice, or by contacting the Assessor’s Office (435) 259-1229.
Right now Grand County is running a pilot program for allowing taxpayers to receive their tax bill via email. We hope to open this program up to the general public sometime in 2018.
