) 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 Petitioner filed its XXXXX withholding tax return on XXXXX, a total of XXXXX days late. Payment was enclosed with the tax return. A late filing penalty in the amount $$$$$ was imposed.
The Petitioner alleges that the return and a check were timely prepared and delivered to the Office of the officer who signs the checks and pays the payroll taxes, but said officer was out of town on vacation. When he returned, he immediately signed the tax return and the check and they were forwarded to the Tax Commission.
The Petitioner further alleges that it is not required to file monthly returns, but only quarterly returns because of the size of their payroll, but as a convenience to them they have asked to pay the withholding taxes monthly.
