BEFORE THE UTAH STATE TAX COMMISSION
v. ) INFORMAL DECISION
) Appeal No. 90‑0131
COLLECTION DIVISION OF THE )
STATE TAX COMMISSION OF UTAH, ) Acct No. XXXXX
STATEMENT OF CASE
This matter came before the Utah State Tax Commission pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act for informal proceedings. No hearing was requested, therefore, the matter was conducted by a review of the file before the Tax Commission.
The Petitioner did not file nor pay its XXXXX sales tax when due. On XXXXX, the Commission filed a nonfiling return on behalf of the Petitioner and found taxes due in the amount of $$$$$. A penalty of $$$$$ was assessed for the failure to timely file and pay the taxes due.
The Petitioner stated that it is a small business and its unfamiliarity with the sales tax filing requirements led to the nonfiling problem.
DECISION AND ORDER
The Tax Commission finds that sufficient cause has been shown which would justify a reduction of the penalty associated with the XXXXX sales tax year to an amount of $$$$$. The Petitioner's request to waive the interest for that period, however, is denied. It is so ordered.
DATED this 17 day of May, 1990
BY ORDER OF THE UTAH STATE TAX COMMISSION.
