Form 204

Arizona taxpayers must file Form 204 by April 18, 2017 to get an automatic 6-month extension of time to file (not to pay). The extended tax return due date is October 16, 2017. The state will also accept a valid federal extension for the period covered by the federal extension.

If you expect to owe taxes, and you are going to take advantage of the automatic extension of time to file, make sure you submit at least 90% of your payment together with Form 204 (if you are mailing it) by April 18, 2017. If you are filing a federal extension or making your AZ extension payment electronically, you do not need to file a Form 204.

Arizona Tax Facts

AZ Income Tax:

Individual income is taxed across five tax brackets at five graduated tax rates:

  • 2.59% on the first $10,163 of taxable income
  • 2.88% for incomes between $10,164 and $25,406
  • 3.36% for incomes between $25,407 and $50,812
  • 4.24% for incomes between $50,813 and $152,434
  • 4.54% for incomes above $152,435

The income amounts are doubled for married couples filing jointly and heads of household.

AZ Sales Tax:

Arizona has a state sales tax (known as Transaction Privilege Tax) rate of 6.6%. The state also has a use tax rate of the same amount.

The TPT applies to vendor purchases rather than consumer purchases. A business vendor can choose to pass either the entire or part of the tax to the consumer.

The maximum AZ sales tax is 10.6% after local surtaxes (all counties charge an additional sales tax of up to 4%). Most groceries, clothes, and prescription drugs and medicines are exempt from the TPT.

Personal property taxes are due Oct. 1. If the tax amount is over $100, the first half is due Oct. 1 and the second half is due March 1 the next year. One-half of the amount of the taxes that are unpaid is delinquent after Nov. 1 and the remaining half that is unpaid is delinquent after May 1.

Odd Tax Fact:

The state of Arizona has an individual tax credit for the cost of installing an at-home water conservation system. This credit applies to installing systems for collecting rainwater or residential graywater.
