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. A free virtual business consultation – usually 30 minutes or less – can preview how our suite of professional bookkeeping and accounting services can maximize your tax savings in Arizona.

Arizona Accounting FAQs

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.
