NFIB applauds getting government to operate “at the speed of business”
NFIB commends Gov. Doug Ducey for signing House Bill 2280 into law, which will now expand the use of electronic filing and payment of business taxes with the Arizona Department of Revenue.
“The Arizona Department of Revenue has long been criticized for lagging in keeping up with technological advances that have become standard practice for the private sector,” said Farrell Quinlan, Arizona state director for the National Federation of Independent Business. “House Bill 2280 will help realign our tax collection and remittance processes to the benefit of all involved.”
The new law aims to get government to operate “at the speed of business,” according to a news release issued by the governor’s office. The “advantages of electronically filing include being easier, more secure, and faster to process than paper returns,” said David Briant, director of the Arizona Department of Revenue, in the release. “E-filing fits our results-driven, customer-focused management system to deliver better, faster, more cost effective government for Arizonans. The e-file legislation provides additional continuous improvement in serving our customers, the taxpayers.”
Rep. Don Shooter sponsored HB2280, further details of which can be read in the governor’s news release.
