Transaction Privilege (Sales) and Use Tax

city skyline with words welcome to the phoenix tax division‚Äč

Similar to other cities in Arizona and the state of Arizona, Phoenix imposes a transaction privilege (sales) tax on certain business activities. The city tax is in addition to the tax imposed by the state. While the city rate varies by business activity, it is two and three tenths percent (2.3%) on most activities.  A business engaged in taxable activity will need to obtain a transaction privilege (sales) tax license with Phoenix.
