If my taxes are delinquent and I make payments how are my payments applied?
If you accumulate more than one year of delinquent taxes, Utah law requires application of payments to the most recent year of delinquency. Payments are applied first to interest, then to penalty and finally to the tax due. Example if you have 2009, 2010 and 2011 delinquent taxes, payment would be applied to 2011 the most recent year due then to the 2010 delinquent tax and finally 2009.
