JAZZ AND DELTA CENTER OPPOSE STATE'S TAX SYSTEM

          Delta Center officials are "protesting" UT's process
     for determining sales taxes on the arena's luxury suites,
     according to Sheila McCann in the SALT LAKE TRIBUNE.  Arena
     and Jazz officials "are also objecting" to the state's
     decisions to tax promotional items given out at games, and
     to tax handling fees collected for telephone ticket orders. 
     UT Tax Commissioners ruled against the arena and the Jazz in
     February, but an appeal was filed last Wednesday in District
     Court by the parent companies of the team and arena.  The
     taxes in question have already been paid, and cover an audit
     period between October '91 and September '94.  According to
     Bob Hyde, VP/Finance for the Jazz and Delta Center, the
     disputed amount is "significant," but is not a "major
     financial setback" (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 3/28).
