Businesses must file taxes electronically

Businesses in Utah should begin preparing to be compliant with a new state law that requires they file their "state annual withholding reconciliations including W-2 and 1099 forms" electronically by Jan. 31, 2016. Charlie Roberts, spokesman for the Utah State Tax Commission said in the release that the new filing method will be a big shift for many businesses in Utah. Of the about 80,000 businesses in Utah, only about 20,000 filed electronically in 2015. The release states that, "The new law also prohibits the Tax Commission from issuing income tax refunds before March 1, unless both the employer and the employee have filed all required returns and forms."
