In addition to our aggressive incentive programs, Arizona is committed to attracting and supporting quality companies through competitive tax policies and has demonstrated a continued trend of reducing property, individual sales and corporate income tax rates:
- Among the lowest corporate income tax rates in the country. 30% reduction in Arizona’s corporate income tax rate, which decreases from 6.97% in 2014 to 4.9% by 2017.
- Sales factor further reduces corporate tax burdens. 100% electable sales factor for multi-state corporations (increasing from 80% to 100% between 2014 and 2017).
- Improved accelerated depreciation schedules. Five-year accelerated depreciation schedules reduce corporate tax burdens. This allows many companies to recover investments more quickly, significantly reducing personal property’s full cash value, and taxes owed, over five years.
- 97% increase in personal property tax exemption.
