Income Tax Filing Requirements
Individuals with an adjusted gross income of at least $5,500 must file taxes, and an Arizona resident is subject to tax on all income, including from other states. Additionally, individuals here on a temporary basis have to file a tax return reporting any income earned in Arizona.
Here are the filing requirements:
|Individuals must file if they are:||AND gross income is at least:||OR Arizona Adjusted Gross Income is at least:|
|Married filing joint||$15,000||$11,000|
|Married filing separate||$15,000||$5,500|
|Head of household||$15,000||$5,500|
For Arizona filing purposes, full-year residents figure their gross income the same way they do for federal income tax filing purposes. Residents should then exclude income Arizona law does not tax, which includes:
- interest from U.S. government obligations;
- Social Security retirement benefits received under Title II of the Social Security Act;
- benefits received under the Railroad Retirement Act;
- active duty military pay;
- pay received for active service as a reservist for a National Guard member.
Please note: An Arizona resident is subject to tax on all income, including earnings from another state. Arizona will also tax retirement from another state. Residents are taxed on the same income they report for federal income tax purposes, subject only to the specific modifications allowed under state law. However, an individual may be able to claim a credit for taxes paid to another state. Please see the Credit Form 309 instructions for additional information.
Part-year residents are also subject to Arizona tax on any income earned while an Arizona resident, and any income earned from an Arizona source before moving to (or after leaving) the state. Individuals subject to tax by both Arizona and another state on the same income may also be eligible for a tax credit. Please see Arizona Credit Form 309 for more information.
Additionally, as a general rule, the same taxable portion of an individual’s pension for federal purposes will be taxable for Arizona purposes. However, there is a subtraction of up to $2,500 for pension income received from the state of Arizona and its political subdivisions, or from U.S. government service, including the U.S. military.
