STATEMENT OF CASE

            This matter came before the Utah State Tax Commission pursuant to the Petitioner's petition for agency action arising from an assessment of a sales tax deficiency assessed against the Petitioner by the Auditing Division.

            Prior to formal hearing on the matter, the parties entered into a settlement whereby the Petitioner agreed to pay the tax deficiency and any applicable interest.  In exchange, the Auditing Division has agreed to request and recommend a waiver of the penalty assessed.

            The basis for the Respondent's recommendation is that insufficient evidence exists which would support their assessment of a XXXXX penalty for an alleged intent to evade the tax due.

ORDER

            Based upon the foregoing, the Tax Commission finds sufficient cause exists which would justify a waiver of the penalty associated with the sales tax deficiency against the Petitioner for the period XXXXX through XXXXX.

            DATED this 27 day of September, 1990.

BY ORDER OF THE UTAH STATE TAX COMMISSION.
