Why are there two calculations for an Arizona city?


You want to know why you are seeing two tax calculations for an Arizona city on your invoice.

  • Arizona adopted a two-tier tax rate for any single item of tangible personal property.
    • Each city has a threshold of sales that this would apply to.
    • Example would be Marana where the first 5000.00 in sales for a single item is taxed at 2.5% while the remaining amount for the item is taxed at 2%

Please review the Arizona state website for information on tax rates and what local jurisdictions have adopted the two-tier tax rates.
