BEFORE THE UTAH STATE TAX COMMISSION
In Re: )
) INFORMAL DECISION
) Appeal No. 93‑2377
) 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.
1. Petitioners filed their XXXXX tax return on the due date of the return, XXXXX.
2. At the time the return was filed, it showed an amount of tax due of $$$$$. Petitioners made payment with the return of $$$$$, and there were withholdings from their paychecks of $$$$$, for a total payment toward the tax of $$$$$, leaving a balance due of $$$$$. Petitioners had paid more than 90% of the tax due on or before the date the return was filed.
3. The Petitioners have appealed indicating that the Tax Commission instructions indicate that an extension may be granted if prepayment has been made in an amount of at least 90% of the tax due, and they therefore feel that no penalty should have been imposed.
4. On XXXXX, when Petitioners filed their return, they also filed a photocopy of their federal application for automatic extension of time, and included a note requesting additional time in which to complete the payment.
DECISION AND ORDER
The Tax Commission finds sufficient cause has been shown to waive the penalty associated with the income tax return for XXXXX. It is so ordered
