Paul Nelson, KSL Newsradio Call your mortgage company or the county assessor to make sure your property taxes are paid on time. They're due today.

This is the day tax analysts say people really despise. "Because this is paid all at once, and they see that big check going out all at once. People really do get upset," explained Utah Taxpayers Association Vice President Royce Van Tassell.

Van Tassell says they expect the state to rake in $2.27 billion. "We expect that about 56.2 percent of that will go to school districts," he said.

He says counties, cities and towns and special districts will get the rest.

Van Tassell also says because of rising property values and new tax bonds, property taxes will increase more than 10 percent over last year. We haven't seen that in more than a decade.
