What’s new with Arizona
Here are AzDOR’s tax change highlights:
The Arizona legislature created a new alternative tax for Arizona small business income (SBI). The 3½% SBI tax could be beneficial to higher-income taxpayers, allowing them to pay a lower tax on small business income than on other income. For more information, see the SBI tax booklet.
For every form AzDOR issues, download the Arizona Booklet X.
