Set Up Utah Returns

This article applies to:Returns Central

Tell Us Where You Collect Tax

Add Utah to the places where you collect tax. This tells AvaTax to calculate tax on Utah transactions. See the Utah State Tax Commission website for details about nexus, registration, and taxes in Utah.

Before you add Utah, there are two things you need to do:

Utah has both sales and sellers use tax. Pick the right tax type based on the way your business is registered and the tax return you need to file. 

"Sourcing" determines the location where a sale is taxed. Utah is an origin-sourced state.

Add Your Company Locations

Add any physical locations you have in Utah. This is important for reporting on the returns.

When you add a location:

  • Enter the state-assigned, three-digit Outlet Number under Additional Information
  • After you validate the location address, make sure it falls in the jurisdictions you expect. If not, you may want to manage your jurisdiction overrides

The outlet number is a three-digit number the state assigns to the location when it's registered with the state. Example: 001

  • Each Utah location requires a unique outlet number

Schedule Your Returns

After you tell us where you collect tax and add locations, you're ready to schedule returns. Go to Returns in AvaTax to provide a funding power of attorney and schedule your returns

Your company name and taxpayer ID from Your Company Details show up on your returns. Make sure they match what’s on your registration information.

Use this info to schedule your returns. Keep in mind that the selections you made when you told us where you collect tax, any location codes you entered, and the forms you select are related and should tie together.

All tax types are reported on a single Utah state return.

  • Select form UT TC-62 Multi Location for in-state locations and out-of-state sales, even if you only have one location
    • Avalara files all Utah sales tax returns using the UT TC-62 Multi Location return.
      If you scheduled a UT TC-62 Single Location return in the past, it has been transitioned to the Multi Location return.
    • This form includes: 
      • Schedule A - Sales of Non-Food and Prepared Food from Fixed Utah Location(s)
      • Schedule AG - Sales of Grocery Food
      • Schedule J - Sales of Non-Food and Prepared Food from Places Other Than Fixed Utah Location(s)
      • Schedule JG - Sales of Grocery Food from Places Other Than Fixed Utah Location(s)

Enter the state-assigned registration ID in the correct format. It's an eight-digit number followed by a three-digit code and a three-letter suffix. Example: 12345678-910-STC

Enter the username and password for the Utah Taxpayer Access Point to file the return electronically.
