STATEMENT OF CASE

            This matter came before the Utah State Tax Commission pursuant to the Rules of Administrative Procedure and the Administrative Procedures Act for informal adjudicative proceedings.  No hearing was requested; therefore, the matter was conducted by review of the file before the Tax Commission.

            On XXXXX, Petitioner filed the withholding tax returns for the first two quarters of XXXXX.  The tax due for the first quarter of XXXXX was $$$$$, and the tax due for the second quarter of XXXXX was $$$$$.

            On XXXXX, the Commission reduced the amount of the penalty for both quarters to a total of $$$$$ which included interest calculated to XXXXX.

DECISION AND ORDER

            The Tax Commission finds insufficient cause in light of the circumstances to further reduce or waive the penalty associated with the first and second quarters of the XXXXX income tax year.  Therefore, the Petitioner's request is denied.  It is so ordered.

            DATED this 6th day of July, 1989.
