The Utah Manufacturers Association has a stake in the current discussion about changes to Utah's three-legged-stool sales tax system and is trying to make sure its voice is heard
Tax reform — and especially sales tax reform — is the topic of ongoing discussion in the state of Utah and the Utah Manufacturing Association is trying to make sure the voice of our membership is part of the discourse. The genesis of the current dialogue was a bill that failed in this year’s legislative session that attempted to address the imbalance in the sales tax structure. As a result of the defeat of HB441, legislative officials are conducting a series of “tax reform listening sessions” around the state to receive input on possible taxation changes.
