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.
The accountant for the Petitioner filed for an extension of the XXXXX corporate franchise tax return of the Petitioner on XXXXX. Because the principals of the corporation were out of town, a check was not submitted with the return.
The return was filed, and the minimum tax of $$$$$ was paid on XXXXX. As a result of the untimely filing and payment, a penalty in the amount of $$$$$ plus interest was assessed.
DECISION AND ORDER
The Tax Commission finds sufficient cause exists to reduce the penalty associated with the XXXXX corporate franchise tax return to $$$$$. It is so ordered.
