Small Business Tax & Accounting in Arizona

Arizona, the Grand Canyon State, features excellent weather, a business-friendly climate, and the world-class cities of Tuscan, Phoenix, and Scottsdale. This makes Arizona an attractive place for entrepreneurs and other businesspeople to establish businesses. And considering startups have a high survival rate after the first year, it’s another reason Arizona is so popular. But a higher overall tax burden – roughly in the middle of all 50 states – puts the state at a disadvantage compared to more tax-friendly alternatives. 

Thriving in such an environment takes effort and planning, which includes taking a strategic approach to your business tax liability. This is where 1-800Accountant, America’s leading virtual accounting firm for small businesses, can help Arizonans.

    Arizona ranks in the middle of all 50 states regarding the overall tax burden. While some states have a lower tax rate, Arizona has a reputation for being a business-friendly state.

    The taxes businesses pay in Arizona depend on how they’re formed. For example, corporations pay Arizona’s 4.9% corporate tax rate, while owners of pass-through entities, such as LLCs, pay personal taxes on their business’s income.

    Arizona’s corporate income tax rate is 4.9%, which applies to corporations and other entities that don’t feature pass-through taxation.

    Arizona typically ranks as one of the top states for LLCs due to its business-friendly climate.

    The cost to become an LLC in Arizona is a $50 Articles of Organization filing fee paid to the Arizona Corporation Commission. When you form your business with 1-800Accountant, we waive our fees and work with the state on your behalf.

    LLCs are not taxed at the entity level in Arizona. LLCs are pass-through entities, allowing owners to pay personal taxes on their business’s income.

    Depending on the nature of the business, some LLCs must apply for a Transaction Privilege Tax license. This must be renewed annually, and fees vary.

    LLC owners who partake in its profits must pay a self-employment tax of 15.3%, which covers Social Security and other benefits.
