Utah tax commissioner to retire

Marc B. Johnson, a 12-year member of the Utah State Tax Commission, is stepping down from the post, although he will remain working for the Tax Commission until his retirement.

"Marc Johnson has done an excellent job in this capacity and I appreciate his years of dedicated service," Gov. Gary Herbert said in a prepared statement released Wednesday.

Johnson will leave the post when Herbert appoints his replacement — a nomination that requires Senate confirmation.

The four tax commissioners hear and rule on tax appeals, as well as administer and supervise state tax laws. Johnson played a key role in overhauling rules governing the tax valuation of multi-county properties, such as those owned by railroads, utilities, and telecommunications and mining companies.

"Marc is a recognized expert in Utah tax laws," Tax Commission Chairman Bruce Johnson said in a statement. "He has worked tirelessly over the years to ensure that those laws are fairly administered. His expertise, dedication and commitment to the public will be sorely missed."
