Overview

You want to know what the tax liability threshold is in Arizona that requires you to file electronically

Environment

Returns

Resolution

As of January 1, 2018, Arizona requires businesses with a tax liability of $20,000 or more to file and pay electronically. This liability threshold is expected to decrease over the next few years, resulting in more businesses being required to file online. If the filing requirements are not met, businesses may be subject to a penalty on their returns. For more information, read the news release: Legislation to Expand Electronic Filing and Payment of Business Taxes Takes Effect Today

Avalara requests that you verify the following:

  • If you have a filing calendar set to electronic:
    • If your business already has an account set up with the State of Arizona, please verify that the login and electronic pin in the Filing Calendar are accurate. 
       
  • If you have a filing calendar set to paper:
    • If you do not already have an online account set up with the State of Arizona,  please do so here. Once your account set-up has been completed, you will need to update your filing calendar using the online filing calendar tool to electronic filing and make sure all credentials are accurate.

For information on updating your filing calendar, please see this article on our Avalara Help Center: Use the Avalara Returns Filing Calendar.


If accurate login credentials and the electronic pins are not maintained, Avalara will be blocked from filing electronically.  In this case, Avalara is not responsible for any notices or P&I associated with filing the return as paper. If you have any questions regarding AZ filing requirements or your AZ account, please contact the Arizona Department of Revenue at 1-800-352-4090.
