PAYMENT PLANS TO RESOLVE UTAH BACK TAXES
The Utah State Tax Commission (USTC) uses a basic threshold of $5,000 to dictate your Payment Agreement
- If you owe less than $5,000 to the state of Utah, then you should be able to get up to a 24-month payment plan without much fuss or financial documentation.
- If your tax liability is more than $5,000 to the state of Utah, then you will be required to complete and submit –
24-month payment plans are standard, but longer Payment Agreements may be granted
if you provide supporting financial documentation backing up your need for more affordable terms.
It’s also important to know that a tax lien will likely be filed
if your USTC Payment Agreement extends beyond 24 months. Paying your tax debt in under 24 months gives you a chance of avoiding a tax lien

When reviewing your request, Utah will look at –
- your compliance history,
- whether you’ve requested penalty relief in the past, and
- the circumstances that led to the accrual.
Utah considers “Reasonable Cause
” when determining whether a Penalty Waiver is warranted. Publication 17 Waivers, Reasonable Cause
outlines the allowed reasons for penalty relief. They are very similar to the IRS’ Reasonable Cause criteria.
