Retail Business License Fee
BRIAN HEAD TOWN
Brian Head Town enacts a Retail Business License Fee in the amount of 1.5% on all taxable items. This fee is used for the town's transit system which is free to the public. The transit system operates during the winter season only, usually mid December until mid April and may run on weekends during the summer months and during special events. The bus runs on a designated route which are depicted by signs throughout the town and brochures that are distributed by our Guest Service Representatives here at the Town Hall.
BACKGROUND: In 1997, the Brian Head Town Council adopted an Ordinance (Ordinance No. 97-007) which enacted a fee be collected for enhanced services. The Council determined a transit system was needed in order to provide the guests a service to get from one location to another without having to drive.
The Retail Business License Fee was adopted at 1.5% of all taxable sales and is identified as a fee and not a tax, therefore, the example listed below is how the fee is to be applied. Please note that the Retail Business License Fee is paid directly to Brian Head Town on a quarterly basis. Businesses have until the end of the following month to submit their reports.
SALES TAX vs. THE BRIAN HEAD RETAIL BUSINESS LICENSE FEE
It has come to the Town’s attention that there has been some confusion regarding the collection of sales tax and the Brian Head Retail Business License Fee. The two most common errors concerns state sales taxes and the town’s Retail Business License Fee. Taxes are to be sent to the Utah State Tax Commission while the Retail Business License Fee is submitted directly to the town.
