Arizona Votes Today on Sales Tax Increase
May 18, 2010
Arizona voters go to the polls today to decide Proposition 100, which will raise the state’s sales tax by one percentage point for three years.
Arizona’s combined 7.92% sales tax is the 9th highest now, and if the rate goes up a point, it will become the 3rd highest. That’d be behind only Tennessee, which has no wage tax, and California, not a state to emulate for fiscal policy.
And although is true that Arizona is a relatively low-tax state, they are middle-of-the-road on business tax climate.
