You can discontinue the program at anytime by contacting the treasures office at (435-738-1190) or instant payments at (800-764-0844). the program will carry over to the next year automatically unless you notify the treasures office or instant payments. (This is not an option for current taxes due for 2016)
In the middle or late part of February the Treasurer’s office mails out coupon booklets to taxpayers who request them (email us to request coupons or let us know you no longer need them). These coupons help taxpayers to make monthly, optional prepayments and avoid a large tax bill in November. Coupons can be mailed in or dropped off at our office. Coupons are based on the last year’s taxes and divide it into 10 payments. The taxpayer receives 9 coupons to be paid Feb to October with any remaining tax appearing on the November tax bill. Current year taxes are not finalized until September so the final payment will be different from the previous 9 payments. Instead of mailing in your prepayment checks, you can set up automatic monthly payments from your bank account or credit card see above.
