Tax Preparers and AZ Form 8879

ALERT - Tax Preparers and AZ Form 8879

For TY2012, Arizona has discontinued the use of the AZ8453.  Arizona still requires the use of the form AZ8879 if the practitioner PIN method is used or when the taxpayer authorizes the electronic return originator to enter or generate the taxpayer’s PIN on his or her e-filed individual income tax return.  The taxpayer needs to sign the AZ8879 in order to comply with Arizona Administrative Code.

The prior notice dated February 5, 2013, incorrectly stated that the federal form 8879 could substitute for the Arizona form.

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.
