The mission of the Arizona Department of Revenue is to Serve Taxpayers!
Tax laws that fall under the department’s purview are primarily in the areas of income, transaction privilege (sales), use, luxury, withholding, property, estate, fiduciary, bingo, and severance.
The director is a member of the Governor’s cabinet and is responsible for the direction, operation, and control of the department to ensure that the administration and collection of taxes are cost effective and performed with high quality to meet taxpayers’ needs.
Reporting to the director is the chief deputy director and deputy director, who assist the director in the day-to-day operations of the department. The chief deputy director serves as acting director when the director is absent.
The department is organized into four divisions. Divisions include: Taxpayer Services, Processing, Education and Compliance, and Support. Each division performs specific functions which are integrated to achieve the department’s major external objectives of efficient tax collection and processing, timely enforcement of tax laws, and accurate valuation of property.
