JAZZ AND DELTA CENTER OPPOSE STATE'S TAX SYSTEM
Published April 1, 1997
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).
