Effect of the Increase to the City of Tucson Sales Tax Rate

Submitted by ejv on Mon, 02/12/2018 - 9:33 am

In November 2017, Tucson resident voters approved a tenth of a percent increase to the City of Tucson sales tax rate. Accordingly, effective February 1, 2018, the rate rose from 2.5% to 2.6%, increasing the total retail sales tax rate in Tucson, AZ from 8.6% to 8.7%. As UA is exempt from the collection of City of Tucson sales tax for sales made by the UA, this change will only apply to purchases from Tucson vendors located within the city limits.

This change has no impact on Arizona use tax assessment, which remains at 5.6%.
