Announcements
The Utah Legislature Tax Restructuring and Equalization Task Force has 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to expand their reach to hear directly from more citizens who can provide insight on how to improve and address our outdated tax structure.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
A series of revenue restructure town hall meetings began in June. The town hall meetings are part of a statewide listening tour being conducted by the Tax Restructuring and Equalization Task Force. In the 2019 General Legislative Session,the Utah Legislature created the task force to look for ways to address the state’s outdated taxstructure, get public input and suggest solutions.

The Davis and Weber Counties town hall meeting will be held Monday, July 8 at Davis Conference Center, Meridian Room, 1651 No. 700 W. in Layton. Open house begins at 6:00 p.m. Town hall meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. For more information click here or visit StrongerFutures.utah.gov.
