In 2019, the Utah State Legislature passed, and the Governor signed, S.B. 69, Consumer Ticket Protection Amendments. S.B. 69 enacts the Ticket Transferability Act (TTA), Utah Code §13-56-101 et seq. The TTA has been in effect since January 1, 2020.
The TTA does not apply to an event or venue of an "exempt entity." The following are "exempt entities" under the TTA:
- A Division I college postseason basketball tournament;
- A nonprofit organization that is exempt from federal income taxation under Section 501(c)(3), Internal Revenue Code, is domiciled in Utah, and that produces an annual international film festival in Utah; and
- A public or private postsecondary institution that is located in Utah.
