Self-Reviews – Photography

The Auditing Division of the Utah State Tax Commission is currently conducting a self-review project on photographers and related businesses. A self-review project consists of selected businesses or individuals reviewing their own books and records for a potential sales and use tax liability.

Sales and use tax references may be found in Title 59 Chapter 12 of the Utah Code, Administrative Rules R865-19S-75, R865-19S-110, and R865-21U-6, and Publication 25.

The following files will assist you in completing this self-review. If you need additional information, contact the Auditing Division at:
