COLLECTION DIVISION OF THE : Appeal No. 86 2024
STATE TAX COMMISSION OF UTAH, ) Acct. No. XXXXX
STATEMENT OF CASE
This matter came before the Utah State Tax Commission for an Informal Hearing on XXXXX. James E. Harward, Hearing Officer, heard the matter for the Tax Commission. The Petitioners failed to appear at the hearing. The Hearing Officer, after reviewing the file, recommends that this matter be decided on the documentation in the file rather than dismissal for failure to appear at the scheduled hearing.
The Petitioners presented evidence that a bankruptcy was filed in XXXXX. The taxes were all paid at that time. However, due to an error by using 5.25% rather than 5.75%, additional tax was due. Said tax has been paid and the Petitioner asked for a waiver of the outstanding penalties and interest.
DECISION AND ORDER
The Tax Commission, after taking due consideration of the facts and circumstances, particularly the filing of the bankruptcy and the outstanding tax having been paid, hereby waives the penalties and interest and declares the account paid in full and orders the account closed.
DATED this 5 day of March, 1987.
BY ORDER OF THE STATE TAX COMMISSION OF UTAH.
