Phoenix Eliminates Tax on Food for Home Consumption
- Mar 16, 2015 | Gail Cole
In October 2013, the Phoenix City Council approved a reduction in the privilege tax rate for retail sales of food for home consumption. At the time, the rate was 2%.
Effective April 1, 2015, the tax will be completely eliminated (0%).
The City of Phoenix offers guidance to help businesses properly report retail food sales activity, understanding that the change comes in the middle of a reporting period for some sellers. Please see this tax bulletin for additional information.
