Your Utah Income Tax Return

Efile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your state tax return (e.g resident, nonresident, or part-year resident returns). However, the IRS and the respective state tax agencies require you to e-file a federal income tax return at the same time you efile a state tax return. This is not an efile.com policy but an IRS and state agency policy. Many taxpayers have asked how they can only prepare and file a state income tax return. The efile.com tax application lets you prepare a state tax return only, however you cannot efile the state return upon completion. Instead, you will have to download the completed state tax return as a PDF file, print it, sign it, and mail it to the respective state - the address is on the PDF file. Find more detailed instructions on how to prepare and file a state only return on efile.com.

* Due to IRS and state tax agency tax data sharing and validation requirements, you can only e-file a state income tax return while also e-filing a federal income tax return. This is not an efile.com created policy, but all online tax web sites have to adhere to this IRS/state issued tax data sharing policy. Find out how to only prepare and file a state tax return. Only on efile.com can you prepare and efile unlimited state tax returns for one low price. Most other sites charge a per state price.

Utah efile Error Codes

If your Utah state return was rejected by the state and not efile.com, you will receive an error reject code. If you prepared and efiled your return on efile.com, we will provide you with an explanation of how to correct the error on your return. You may then resubmit your state return at no additional charge until it is accepted by the state. View a list of all Utah State efile Income Tax Return Error Reject Codes.

How To File an Utah Tax Extension

If you are certain that you cannot file your Utah return by the deadline, you do not need to file for an extension. You will automatically receive a 6-month extension of time to file your return (not to pay). The extended tax return due date is October 15, 2019. Please be aware that Utah will not accept the federal extension form as an extension for your Utah tax return. However, if you expect to owe income taxes, you should submit your payment with payment voucher Form TC-547. If you efiled your return and are making a payment by check or money order, you must complete a Form TC-547 on efile.com. If you are making a payment by credit card, a Form TC-547 is not needed. If you are making an automatic extension payment, you also must use Form TC-547 unless it is made electronically. Use efile.com and prepare an Utah tax return to find out what your Utah state income tax payment will be.

Important: Do you need to prepare and e-file an IRS or federal tax extension as well?

More information on Utah Sales Tax

UT Personal Property Tax

Personal property taxes in Utah are assessed and collected at the local level.

The taxable value of a property is 100% of its fair market value; this does not include any exemptions that may be permitted. The Utah Constitution permits the Legislature to exempt up to 45% of the fair market value of primary residential property from property taxes.

Prior to May 22 of each year, county assessors ascertain the names of all property owners and assess the property based on its value on January 1 of each Tax Year.

In order to determine the value of a personal property, the Utah State Tax Commission provides a number of classification categories, which are used by all UT county assessors.

The Utah State Tax Commission Property Tax Division has four tax relief programs:

  • Circuit Breaker for taxpayers age 65 or older
  • Veterans exemption
  • Blind exemption
  • Indigent abatement/deferral

Odd Utah Tax Fact

Utah has a "Sexually Explicit Business and Escort Service" tax valued at 10%. The tax is collected for the following transactions at the service or business:

  • Admission fees
  • User fees
  • Retail sales of tangible personal property
  • Sales of food and food ingredients or prepared food
  • Sales of any beverage
  • Any other services

The tax is added to any applicable sales tax charged, but it may not be imposed on any sales and use tax collected.

The revenue generated by the tax will be deposited into a special fund for various task forces and treatment programs that deal with sex offenders.
