Resources Law by State Arizona Sales Tax Rate

Arizona Sales Tax Rate

Arizona has a transaction privilege tax (TPT) that differs from a "true" sales tax in that the tax is levied on the gross receipts of the vendor and is not a liability of the consumer. (As explained in Arizona Administrative Code rule R15-5-2202,[7] vendors are permitted to pass the amount of the tax on to the consumer, but remain the liable parties for the tax to the state.) TPT is imposed under sixteen tax classifications (as of November 1, 2006),  with the tax rate most commonly encountered by Arizona consumers (e.g., for retail transactions) set at 6.6%. The current tax is 6.6%, though cities and counties can add as much as 6% to the total rate. Food for home consumption and prescription drugs (including legend drugs and certain prescribed homeopathic medication) are two of many items of tangible personal property that are statutorily exempt from the retail TPT. Arizona's TPT is one of the few excise taxes in the country imposed on contracting activities rather than sales of construction materials.
