July President’s Message: Tax Modernization and Revenue Restructure Update

Published by

Posted on July 3, 2019

A series of revenue restructure town hall meetings is underway as part of a statewide listening tour being conducted by the Tax Restructuring and Equalization Task Force. The Davis and Weber Counties town hall meeting will be held Monday, July 8th at Davis Conference Center, Meridian Room, 1651 No. 700 W. in Layton. We know that tax reform is an important topic to our local businesses. We collaborated to bring this meeting to our communities and invite you to participate in this, or other town hall meetings, and provide your input. The open house begins at 6:00 pm with the town hall following at 7:00 pm.

The Utah Legislature Tax Restructuring and Equalization Task Force has also launched its website – StrongerFutures.utah.gov – to hear directly from Utahns. Public input is a critical part of the process as the task force considers how to restructure the state’s funding imbalance.

The website equips the task force to expand their reach to hear directly from more citizens who can provide insight on how to improve and address our outdated tax structure. Engaged citizen’s feedback is valuable to the process and will provide the Legislature with informed recommendations for consideration.

There are numerous ways to be actively involved in the process and to share your thoughts.

  • Provide input by filling out an online comment form on the website
  • Submit a comment at a town hall meeting
  • Sign up to speak* at a town hall meeting during public feedback. *Space is limited based on time and is on a first-come basis
  • Attend a town hall meeting to learn more, provide input and talk with task force members
