Cities of Davis County
In all, there are 15 cities that make up Davis County.  Whether they are small or large it takes all of them to be successful.  Davis County has a great working relationship with all the cities administration, mayor’s and councils.  We work hand in hand to retain, expand and recruit businesses to our area.  All the cities have taken the slowdown in the economy as time to review building and zoning ordinances, general plans and business park plats.  This has prepared everyone for a fast track to future growth and development.  Davis County is where you will find connections.

Taxes

The State Income Tax Rate is 5%.  The State of Utah, Counties and Cities all pride themselves on having one of the lowest tax structures in the United States.  The tax structure splits sales tax, personal and real property taxes between all taxing entities.  In some communities there are special service districts and Recreation/Arts/Parks/Zoo taxes.  These are usually sales tax or special levies for a given area.  As a whole, Davis County is a little lower in local taxes than surrounding communities.  This shows a stable and fiscally responsible local government.  

Governor Herbert said it best, “Governments role is to stay off of businesses backs and out of their wallets.”  We at Davis County agree with his statement.
