In 2018, legislation was passed requiring the Lt. Governor to create and maintain a registry of local governmental and limited purpose entities in Utah. This information is to be shared with county governments. The UACPA helped in crafting the language used in SB 28 and 29 that affects many nonprofits.

Nonprofits required to file an accounting report with the State Auditor must register with the state. Accounting reports to the State Auditor are required when a nonprofit has accepted more than $25,000 or more in federal, state, or local government monye in their fiscal year. This $25,000 also includes any money originally given to a state or local government that is passed to a nonprofit. 

For a $50 registration fee, nonprofits that spend or receive government money totaling more than $25,000 must submit their information through entityregistry.utah.gov

The registration for deadline is June 30, 2019. Those who do not register will receive a reminder from the Lt. Governor's office. If your organization has still not registered after 30 days, the Lt. Governor's office will refer you to the State Auditor.
