What’s new with Arizona
The state legislature passed legislation to shift Arizona from a progressive tax to a 2½% flat tax. The law scheduled a phase-in for the transition but also allowed the change to occur if the state budget met certain goals. Thanks to a solid economy, the state coffers achieved the goal so the governor’s office announced the flat tax will take effect for 2023. It will not affect 2022 tax returns.
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.
