BEFORE THE UTAH STATE TAX COMMISSION
In Re: ) INFORMAL DECISION
XXXXX, ) Appeal No. 93‑0476
) 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. As provided for by Utah Code Ann. 63‑46b‑5, this decision is based upon information contained in the Tax Commission's file.
Petitioner did not request a hearing in this matter.
Petitioner filed its XXXXX withholding tax return with payment late on XXXXX. As a result, the Tax Commission assessed Petitioner a XXXXX percent late penalty plus interest.
XXXXX, an accountant for Petitioner, stated that the return and payment in question were processed late because of a changeover in personnel in the accounts payable department. The new staff had been on the job for two weeks and was trying to learn as well as catch up with past due accounts when it missed the XXXXX withholding deadline.
Petitioner's withholding tax filing and payment history is excellent.
DECISION AND ORDER
The Tax Commission finds sufficient cause exists to reduce the penalty associated with the withholding tax due for XXXXX to $$$$$. It is so ordered.
DATED this 7 day of May, 1993.
BY ORDER OF THE UTAH STATE TAX COMMISSION.
