Self-Reviews – U.S. Customs

The Utah State Tax Commission is reviewing information received from the United States Customs Service to identify individuals and businesses importing items and declaring Utah as their ultimate state of destination. Merchandise, such as art, jewelry, equipment, construction materials, etc. purchased tax-free that is not resold is subject to Utah’s use tax.

References may be found in Administrative Rules R865-21U-1, R865-21U-6, and R865-19S-58, and in Utah Code Section 59-12-107. These and other references may be found here.
