Arizona Online Portal for Local Sales Taxes
- May 24, 2012 | Will Frei
Arizona passed HB 2466, a bill which provides online portals for Arizona taxpayers to pay local transaction privilege and excise taxes.
The bill states that municipalities that have not entered into an agreement with the Arizona Department of Revenue for ". . . unified or coordinated licensing, collection and auditing programs for such taxes . . ." will provide taxpayers with an online portal where they can pay local taxes.
The portal will allow taxpayers to report and remit local transaction privilege tax (commonly called sales tax) and excise taxes via a single online interface. These taxes include ". . . use tax, severance tax, jet fuel excise and use tax, and rental occupancy tax . . . ." Each municipality will provide its own portal after consulting with the Department of Revenue.
