SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The long-standing dispute over how much an aerospace and defense company should pay in taxes could be decided by the Utah Supreme Court.

Alliant Techsystems sued Salt Lake County six years ago, asking for a tax refund of eleven (M) million dollars for 1995 through 1999.

In 2000, the now-defunct County Commission brokered a five (M) million dollar settlement covering those years. Since then, some county officials have balked at the settlement.

The Utah Supreme Court did not issue an immediate opinion after hearing arguments in the case yesterday -- and has not scheduled a date for a ruling.
