2015 Utah Individual Income Taxes

Image of tax-related iconsIncome Tax Instructions

This site has in-depth information to help you file and pay Utah income taxes for the current year and for years going back to 2005. You can also find line-by-line instructions, links to forms & publications, and information on electronic filing.

Later Refunds This Year

The Utah legislature passed a new law that prevents the Tax Commission from issuing any income tax refunds before March 1 unless both the employer and employee have filed all required returns and forms. This means your refund might be delayed if your employer has not electronically submitted their information to the Tax Commission by January 31. This page gives more information for employers regarding this important change.

Speeding Your Refund

Filing electronically is the fastest way to get your refund. If you file by paper, it can take up to ninety days. Do not file a paper return if you file electronically, as it will slow down the process.

New This Year

There is a new tax credit of up to $2,000 for hiring people who are homeless. See Employing Persons Who Are Homeless Tax Credit for more information.

Don't Forget Your Use Tax

If you don't pay sales tax when you purchase a taxable item, then you're required to pay use tax. This includes Internet or catalog purchases. To learn all about use tax, including how to pay it, see Utah Use Tax for Internet and Catalog Purchases.

Changes to Voluntary Contributions

Beginning with the 2016 income tax return (due in 2017), the voluntary contribution for the Cat and Dog Community Spay and Neuter Program (Section 59-10-1310) will no longer be available. See this notice for more information.
