Utah State Specific Strategies

In March 2008 Utah lawmakers passed legislation that slightly increases the state sales tax in order to offset a new five percent tax credit for health care costs paid by residents who do not have access to an employer-sponsored health plan.  Self-employed residents and others that purchase individual health plans are eligible for the state's health care tax credit.  The maximum amount for this nonrefundable credit is $300 for single taxpayers, $600 for married couples filing jointly, and $900 for taxpayers with dependants.
