Changes to Arizona Withholding for Wages Paid After December 31, 2010

Changes to Arizona Withholding for Wages Paid After December 31, 2010

The Department has revised Arizona Form A‑4 effective for wages paid after December 31, 2010. The changes include:

  • Providing an additional withholding percentage of 0.8%. Previously available percentages are unchanged.
  • Removal of the $15,000 annual compensation threshold.  All seven withholding percentage rates are available to all employees, regardless of annual compensation.
  • Relaxing the exemption requirements.  The employee only has to expect that there will be no Arizona tax liability in the current taxable year (instead of not having a liability in the prior year and not expecting one in the current year). However, this withholding exemption election will need to be renewed annually, similar to federal requirements.

January 2016 AZTaxes Changes

If you are new to this site, you will find a highly interactive application to create your account and register your business to apply and pay for a transaction privilege tax license or register for withholding.

Existing Users: Several changes may have occurred since you last logged in:

  • Due to increased security, you will be required to answer four security questions (one time measure) and set up an electronic signature in the form of a six (6) to 10 digit PIN. You will need this PIN when you file and pay your TPT-1.
  • Dashboard functionality has increased which means you are able to view your filing history, liability information and due date information.
  • If you have more than one business, you can now link the accounts within your dashboard.

Look for more enhancements throughout the rest of the year at www.AZTaxes.gov.
