A newer report updates the figures on Utah’s tax burden. Please see that report here.
Although Utah’s tax system is fairly typical in relying on a balance of property, income and sales taxes, Utah does have some unique tax policies that set it apart from many states. Most notable is Utah’s earmarking of 100% of income tax revenues for education funding.

Most recently, the sales tax is undergoing significant changes designed to make it easier to collect tax on mail-order and internet sales.
