Contact the Tax Commission if address information is incorrect or if ownership changes. If your business conducts restaurant sales or rents or leases motor vehicles, you must file this return even if no tax was collected during this filing period. If you do not conduct these types of businesses, do not file this return. Sales and Use taxes collected by a seller shall be held in trust for the benefit of the state and for payment to the Tax Commission in the manner and at the time provided for in Title 59, Chapter 12. Amended Returns: To amend a previously filed return, please check the "Amended Return" box below the "Return due on or before" box, and enter the tax period being amended in the "Tax Period" box. Amended returns should be filed with corrected amounts (not net amounts). Calculate any refund or balance due by subtracting the original payment from the corrected tax due. Submit payment of the balance due, or send a letter requesting a refund of the overpayment. Failure to pay all additional tax and interest could result in additional charges. The seller discount for this tax did not take effect until January 1, 1999. Amended returns for periods prior to this date should NOT include any seller discount.
Tax on Short-Term Leases and Short-Term Rentals of Motor Vehicles
Utah Code 59-12-601 through 603 allows county legislative bodies to impose a tourism tax on all short-term leases and rentals of motor vehicles, where such leases or rentals do not exceed 30 days. Utah Code 59-12-1201 enacts a statewide tax of 2.5 percent, in addition to the county tax, on all short-term leases and rentals of motor vehicles, where such leases and rentals do not exceed 30 days. The counties listed separately on the front of this return impose the tourism tax on leases and rentals of motor vehicles. Lessors within those named counties must collect that tax along with the statewide tax at the rate indicated on the front of this form, and enter those amounts on the appropriate lines. Lessors located within all other counties must collect 2.5 percent on all short-term leases and rentals of motor vehicles, and enter those amounts on the "statewide tax" line. The term "motor vehicle" includes, but is not limited to, cars, trucks, jeep-type vehicles, motor homes, etc., normally rented for tourism or recreation purposes, but does not include off-highway vehicles or snowmobiles. The following leases and rentals of motor vehicles are exempt from the statewide motor vehicle rental tax and, where imposed, the county tourism tax on short-term leases and rentals: 1) Leases and rentals of motor vehicles for the purpose of temporarily replacing a motor vehicle that is being repaired pursuant to a repair or insurance agreement; 2) Leases and rentals of motor vehicles that are registered for a gross laden weight of 12,001 pounds or more, and; 3) Leases and rentals of motor vehicles as personal household goods moving vans. Leases and rentals of motor vehicles that would be exempt from sales tax are also exempt from this tax. Exemptions must be documented by a signed Exemption Certificate, TC-721 and retained by the lessor. 1. Locality Code will be provided by the Tax Commission. 2. Enter the total lease/rental amount collected for each county in Utah. Do not include sales tax collected as part of the total. 3. The tax rate that is applicable to each county or Statewide Tax will be provided by the Tax Commission. 4. Multiply the total in column 2 by the tax rate in column 3 and enter in column 4. Total column 4 and enter on Total Tax Due line. 5. The seller discount rate that applies to each county will be provided by the Tax Commission. (The seller discount does not apply to the Statewide Tax that has been collected.) 6. Multiply the total in column 2 by the seller discount rate in column 5 and enter in column 6. 7. Subtract column 6 from column 4 and enter amount of net tax due in column 7. 8. Add column 7 and enter Total Net Tax Due and pay this amount.
Tax on Restaurant Sales of Prepared Foods and Beverages
Utah Code 59-12-601 through 603 also allows county legislative bodies to impose a tax of up to 1 percent on all sales of prepared foods and beverages that are sold by restaurants. All restaurants within counties indicated on the front of this form must collect this tax at the rate indicated. The term "restaurant," for purpose of this tax, is defined as any retail establishment whose business is the sale of foods and beverages for immediate consumption. This includes, but is not limited to the following: · full-service restaurants; · fast-food restaurants, including their drive-up windows; · single and multiple item food concessions in malls, such as cookies, hot dogs, sandwiches, and beverages; · college and university cafeterias open to the general public or employee cafeterias; · sidewalk vendors; · full-service restaurants or cafeterias within department stores; · sellers who deliver the foods and beverages they prepare, such as pizza; · concession stands operated in stadiums; · caterers; and · private clubs. The following are not restaurants for purposes of this tax; · theaters that sell food items, but not dinner theaters; · establishments whose primary business is the sale of prepackaged boxes of candies, nuts or other items not intended for immediate consumption; · establishments not subject to the sales tax because of such things as their religious or charitable nature; · establishments whose primary business is the sale of fuel or food items for off-premise, but not immediate consumption. Sellers operating two or more lines of business that sell food and beverage items from the same outlet must determine which line of business accounts for the highest revenues. The line that accounts for the highest revenues will govern the application of this tax. For example, if candy store sales of prepackaged candy constitutes 80 percent of overall revenue and over-the-counter sales of suckers and other candy items constitute 20 percent, the establishment is not a restaurant and the 1 percent tax does not apply. For more detailed information on the definition of a restaurant, please refer to Tax Commission Rule R865-12L-17. Retail establishments that meet the definition of a restaurant and sell prepackaged foods (such as potato chips) as incidental items to their sale of prepared foods or beverages shall apply this tax to the prepackaged foods as well. Restaurant sales of items other than food and beverages, such as souvenir T-shirts, are not subject to this tax. Filing dates, penalties and interest, and other administrative provisions are the same as for sales tax returns.
