On April 14, the Utah Tax Commission released previously confidential details regarding its sales tax agreement with Amazon, as reported by the Salt Lake Tribune. The Utah State Records Committee had ordered the Commission to release the first six pages of the Amazon agreement after a request from the libertarian group Libertas Institute. Amazon began collecting and remitting sales tax in Utah on January 1, 2017.
The agreement does not list any tax subsidies for Amazon, though it stipulates that Amazon has no liability for past tax collections
