STATEMENT OF CASE
This matter came before the Utah State Tax Commission for a Settlement Conference pursuant to the provisions of Utah Code Ann. §59-1-502.5, on XXXXX. Gail Reich, Administrative Law Judge, heard the matter for and on behalf of the Commission. Present and representing Petitioner by telephone was XXXXX. Present and representing Respondent was XXXXX.
Petitioner is requesting waiver of penalty and interest resulting from XXXXX income tax. XXXXX was the XXXXX of filing for Petitioner in Utah.
The evidence at the hearing showed that the Petitioner was involved in XXXXX which resulted in XXXXX from year to year. The XXXXX were not received by Petitioner in time to timely file an appeal. Without the XXXXX, the Petitioner was in no position to estimate the amount of the tax due. Petitioner had not XXXXX XXXXX and therefore could not rely on XXXXX.
DECISION AND ORDER
Based upon the information presented at the conference, and the records of the Tax Commission, the Commission finds sufficient cause has been shown to waive the penalties but not the interest assessed for the XXXXX income tax year.
This decision does not limit a party's right to a formal hearing. However, this Decision and Order will become the Final Decision and Order of the Commission unless any party to this case files a written request within thirty (30) days of the date of this decision to proceed to a Formal Hearing. Such a request shall be mailed to the address listed below and must include the Petitioner's name, address, and appeal number:
Utah State Tax Commission
210 North 1950 West
Salt Lake City, Utah 84134
Failure to request a Formal Hearing will preclude any further administrative action or appeal rights in this matter.
DATED this 11th day of January, 1994.
BY ORDER OF THE UTAH STATE TAX COMMISSION.
