Special Session SB 1005

February 8, 2010|AZPM

Special Session Senate Bill 1005 deals with the amount of income tax paid by non-Arizona residents. It requires pro-rated income tax deductions for non-residents who make money and pay taxes in Arizona. Currently, Arizona law requires non-resident tax payers to pro-rate only itemized deductions. It is estimated the change could bring in an additional $22 million dollars in the 2011 tax year. The proposal passed the full Senate on February 2, 2010 on 21-7 vote.
