SALT LAKE CITY -- Several counties want to know what's going on at the State Tax Commission?
The Deseret News reports Salt Lake, Utah, and Davis Counties have all had problems with the way the commission distributes tax revenue. Salt Lake, for example, expected to get a check in July for $700,000; instead it got a bill for $200,000.
When asked about the discrepancy, the commission said it was using a different interpretation of state statute to calculate payments but refused to say what that is.
Mayor Peter Corroon's office has since issued a formal request for explanation.
The commission says it's working to set up a meeting with county fiscal officers on the matter.
