BEFORE THE UTAH STATE TAX COMMISSION
In Re: )
) INFORMAL DECISION
) Appeal No. 93‑1441
) 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.
XXXXX was in business only during the XXXXX calendar year. Its sales tax return was due on XXXXX, but was not filed until XXXXX. The return established sales tax liability of $$$$$, which was paid with the return.
Late filing and late payment penalties of $$$$$ have been assessed against the company.
DECISION AND ORDER
In view of the fact that XXXXX had no previous experience with sales tax filing requirements, the small amount of tax at issue, and the relatively short period of the company's delay in filing the return, the Tax Commission finds reasonable cause exists to waive the penalty associated with the company's XXXXX sales tax liability. It is so ordered.
DATED this 16 day of August, 1993.
BY ORDER OF THE UTAH STATE TAX COMMISSION.
