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.
On XXXXX, the Petitioner was notified by a letter from the Tax Commission that a sales tax return for the first quarter of XXXXX had not been filed. The Petitioner responded by submitting a copy of the sales tax return dated XXXXX and a copy of the check in payment of that return in the amount of $$$$$ dated XXXXX.
The Petitioner stated that the return and check were timely filed but that both were lost either in the mail or by the Tax Commission. The Petitioner, after several months of correspondence with the Commission issued another check in payment of the sales tax due for the quarter in question.
