City of Tucson Sales Tax Rate Increase Effective July 1, 2017

On May 16, 2017, Tucson resident voters approved a 5-year half-cent increase to the City of Tucson sales tax rate. Effective July 1, 2017, the rate will rise from 2.0% to 2.5%, increasing the total retail sales tax rate in Tucson, AZ from 8.1% to 8.6%. This change has no impact on Arizona use tax assessment, which remains at 5.6%. FSO has evaluated UAccess Financials and current tax calculations within requisitions will accommodate this change so there is limited impact on users.

If you have additional questions or concerns about this change, please contact Tax Services at (520) 621-1957 or taxservices [at] fso [dot] arizona [dot] edu.
