Sales tax equity highlights accomplishments for small business
The 2019 half of the 54th Arizona State Legislature adjourned May 28 with a couple of huge accomplishments for NFIB. Lawmakers will reconvene Jan. 13, 2020.
Online Retail Sales Tax
NFIB successfully lobbied the 2019 state legislature for equity between sales taxes imposed on retail brick-and-mortar sales and those made by out-of-state, online retailers. The final legislation, effective October 1, simpliﬁes the Arizona retail tax base in a way that is also fair to remote sellers, many of which are small businesses. The changes included in this legislation will simplify the system that all small retail businesses face when conducting business in the state.
Sales Tax on Services
NFIB supported Arizona’s Proposition 126, which was passed by the voters on November 6, 2018. This proposition prohibits the state and local governments from enacting new taxes, or increasing tax rates in eﬀect on December 31, 2018, on services performed in Arizona.
