Modified Risk Order Tobacco Products

Manufacturers of products with an FDA modified risk order must submit a copy of the order to the Tax Commission at TOBmodifiedrisk@utah.gov to qualify the products for a reduced tax rate.

The reduced tax rate for the product begins on the first day of the calendar quarter following 90 days from the date the manufacturer submits the copy of the order to the Tax Commission (see Utah Code §59-14-104).
