Contracting FAQs

During the 2013, 2014, and 2015 legislative sessions, the legislature made significant changes to how Arizona transaction privilege tax (“TPT”) applies to activities involving the modification or alteration of real property.  This document addresses various questions and provides examples involving the implications of the changes to the Prime Contracting classification effective January 1, 2015.  This document does not address other activities that may be taxable under the Prime Contracting classification.

Tobacco E-File Program

The Arizona Legislature passed a law requiring tobacco distributors to file reports and returns and remit payments electronically, beginning July 1, 2015.  This webpage was established to communicate important information and instructions to distributors for this new requirement.  The Department is currently working with a vendor to ensure that the e-file system is in place for the July 20, 2015 filing date.

The e-file system will be used to register distributors, pay license fees, renew licenses, file reports and returns, pay tobacco liabilities (excise tax, penalties, and interest), purchase stamps, and upload invoice detail and images.  Over the next several months the Department will provide training materials, configuration requirements, and other important updates.

Due to the short window to prepare for the release of the e-file system, please check this site frequently for new information.

The Luxury Tax Notice (LTN) below contains important information regarding the new requirement and provides hyperlinks to Arizona Revised Statutes and the PACT Act.
