Shared Master Offense Table

This table contains all active state, county and municipal offense codes. The Utah Prosecution Council, Administrative Office of the Courts, Driver License Division and Bureau of Criminal Identification all contribute to the Shared Master Offense Table (SMOT).

The Shared Master Offense Table is updated on the 15th of each month. If the 15th is on a weekend or holiday, it will be posted the first business day after the 15th. The most recent full version of the SMOT table is available for download here:

Adding or Updating Local Codes to the Shared Master Offense Table

A county or municipality may request a new or updated offense code by emailing smotrequest@utcourts.gov. Each request must include the offense code violation, description, default severity class, recommended fine amount and if the offense requires a mandatory court appearance. If the request includes 5 or more offense codes the request should be sent in a spreadsheet format.

District and justice courts may request an offense code be entered here.

If you have comments, suggestions or questions about the fine schedule, please submit them to smotrequest@utcourts.gov.

The Utah State Courts mission is to provide the people an open, fair, efficient, and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law.
