Utah – State Lawmakers Push Forward With Tax Overhaul, But Critics Say A Sales Tax Hike On Food Hurts The Poor


SALT LAKE CITY — A revised bill that overhauls Utah’s tax code could be released as soon as Friday.

Speaking to reporters, House Speaker Brad Wilson, R-Kaysville, said the next public hearing on the revised bill would be Monday afternoon.

“Overall, Utahns are going to be paying less tax to the state of Utah starting next year if we get this accomplished,” he said.

Speaker Wilson said there were a few changes made as a result of public feedback, including some tweaks to which services now face a sales tax. That has been one of the most controversial aspects of the bill, with public comment largely against it.
