Taxes in Arizona

Arizona State Tax Quick Facts

  • Income tax: 2.59% - 4.50%
  • Sales tax: 5.60% - 11.20%
  • Property tax: 0.62% average effective rate
  • Gas tax: 18 cents per gallon of regular gasoline, 26 cents per gallon of diesel

Arizona has been one of the fastest growing states in recent years, as low taxes may have played a role in drawing people to the desert. Among U.S. states, Arizona has below-average income and property tax rates, and it has the fourth lowest gas tax rate in the nation. On the other hand, when considering both statewide and local taxes, the Grand Canyon State has the 11th-highest sales tax rate in the country. In all, the effect of Arizona’s tax system varies depending on your specific financial circumstances.

A financial advisor in Arizona can help you understand how taxes fit into your overall financial goals. Financial advisors can also help with investing and financial plans, including retirement, homeownership, insurance and more, to make sure you are preparing for the future.

Arizona Income Taxes

Like the federal income tax, Arizona’s state income tax has rates based on income brackets. The rates range from 2.59% to 4.50%, with higher brackets paying higher rates.

Those rates apply to Arizona taxable income. The starting point for computing Arizona taxable income is federal adjusted gross income (AGI). From here, there are a number of subtractions and additions made to calculate taxable income. For example, interest income from non-Arizona municipal bonds is taxable, and must be added to taxable income.

For the most part, however, calculating taxable income is a matter of subtracting deductions and exemptions from gross income. Itemized deductions in Arizona track very closely to federal itemized deductions. If you choose not to itemize on your Arizona tax return, you can claim the Arizona standard deduction, which is $12,550 for single filers and $25,100 for joint filers. Each of these match the federal standard deduction.

Arizona Sales Tax

You’ll have to pay state and local sales taxes on purchases made in Arizona. The statewide rate is 5.60%.

While most products purchased in the state will be subject to those rates, some items are exempt. Among the items exempt from sales tax in Arizona are groceries, internet subscriptions, prescription drugs and professional or personal services.

Arizona Property Tax

The typical homeowner pays $1,578 per year in property taxes in Arizona. The average effective property tax rate (total taxes paid as a percentage of home value) is 0.62%. That rate varies somewhat between cities and counties, but no county in Arizona has an effective property tax rate higher than 1.01%, which is just 0.06% below the U.S. average of 1.07%.

Arizona’s sales tax may be on the higher side, but its property taxes are among the lowest in the nation. If you’re looking to refinance or relocate to Arizona, take a look at our guide to Arizona mortgage rates and getting a mortgage in the state.
