Several law changes recently took effect in Arizona.

First, definitions for the prime contracting transaction privilege tax have changed. Taxable prime contracting activities now do not include maintenance, repair, replacement, or alteration of existing property. Taxable prime contracting activities ("modification" activities) include construction, improvement, movement, wreckage, and demolition.

Second, Arizona removed retail exemptions for sales of property shipped directly outside the United States. Arizona also removed the exemption for sales of property (except for motor vehicles) sold to nonresidents and delivered outside Arizona.

Third, there have been changes to the licensing and filing requirements for transaction taxes. For example, returns that are not filed electronically must now be received on or before the second-to-last business day of the month.

Arizona is also in the process of simplifying its state and local transaction tax reporting process. Although the state had planned to create a single point for licensing, filing, and paying this tax, this system has not yet been put in place. The state plans to have this system in place in 2016.
