) Appeal No. 90‑3088
) Account No. XXXXX
STATEMENT OF CASE
This matter came before the Utah State Tax Commission pursuant to the Administrative Procedures Act and the rules of the Utah State Tax Commission for informal proceedings. No hearing was requested, therefore, this decision is based upon information contained in the Tax Commission's file.
The Petitioners filed their XXXXX Utah income tax return in a timely fashion. Due to an error on the part of their tax preparer, the Petitioners underpaid the tax due by $$$$$.
The Petitioners' underpayment was discovered by Tax Commission staff. On XXXXX, the Petitioners were informed by letter of the underpayment and advised that payment of the amount due plus interest must be made within XXXXX days to avoid imposition of a late payment penalty.
The Petitioners submitted payment of the tax and interest on XXXXX, XXXXX days later.
DECISION AND ORDER
Although the original error leading to the underpayment of the Petitioner's tax liability is understandable, the Petitioners failed to make the necessary additional payment within XXXXX days of the notification by Tax Commission staff.
The Tax Commission finds sufficient cause does not exist to waive the penalty associated with the income tax liability for XXXXX. It is so ordered.
DATED this 19 day of February, 1991.
