Arizona: TPT Simplification is Complicated


 It takes time.

There is a new development in the slow and steady move toward transaction privilege tax simplification in Arizona. The Arizona Department of Revenue announced in October that final simplification would be delayed and laid out a timeline for implementation. At that time, it was explained that the state’s eighteen non-program cities, which administer their own taxes, would continue to license and collect TPT from taxpayers for an additional year. Initially the DOR had hoped to take over administration for the non-program cities on January 1, 2015.

Now, however, the department has announced that it will administer TPT renewals, licensing and payments for the following non-program cities:

  • Bullhead City
  • Somerton
  • Willcox

The remaining fifteen non-program cities will continue to administer TPT through 2015.
