Important Information When Municipalities Pass Tax Rate Changes
The Arizona Department of Revenue’s focus is on serving our customers, so the Agency feels it is important to provide awareness as to why there is sometimes a difference between the Department updating a rate change in its tax tables and the taxing jurisdiction.
The Department has an agreement in place with municipalities, which includes a process for when there is a tax rate change by any city or town, there is a 60-day period before implementation. This way our customers, Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT)-licensed businesses, have time to prepare for the tax rate change.
