WASHINGTON (AP) -- Utah will receive more than $20 million this year from the Interior Department to help make up for property taxes that can't be collected on federal lands within the state.

Salt Lake County received more than $126,000 in payment-in-lieu-of-taxes funds, known as PILT money. That's for 96,311 acres, up $217 from the 2006 payment.

Tooele County received the largest share of the money the state received from the Interior Department with $1.9 million for roughly 2 million acres. But that's still about $8,000 less than last year.
