Why Does the AZ Sales Tax Rate Matter?


Zip2Tax makes it quick and easy to get accurate, comprehensive Arizona sales tax rate costs. Failing to properly account for all applicable sales tax can create costly problems for businesses, such as:

  • Extra Costs That Hurt Your Margins If a business doesn’t charge the right amount to customers or clients for all applicable state and local sales tax, businesses could have to cover the difference.
  • Time Intensive, Costly Sales Tax Audits Without properly accounting for the applicable AZ sales tax rate, businesses are left vulnerable to a state sales tax audit. This could mean your business is hit with a fat sales tax bill during tax season to cover sales tax that wasn’t collected from the previous fiscal year.
  • Poor Customer Service That Could Negatively Affect Your Bottom Line If the right AZ sales tax rate isn’t applied on a purchase, a business has two options to be tax compliant: 1) the business can cover the difference themselves, creating added expenses and lower sales margins, or 2) the business can contact the customer, explain the situation and change the price after the sale is made, risking customer dissatisfaction and lost business from the customer having to pay more after they’ve already made their purchase.

Paying taxes shouldn’t be a strength, it should be a task and the data from Zip2Tax makes it a simple.”

– Robert, a satisfied Zip2Tax customer from West Chester, OH

“We are a small online retailer and we only need sales tax for one state. It doesn’t make sense for us to spend a lot on sales and use tax services…Without your service, this would be very difficult. The way your tables break out all the specific taxes is the feature I find the most useful. And, your support has been superb!”

– Doug, a satisfied Zip2Tax customer at Focused Sales, Inc.

“Your product is so easy to use and quick. We were surfing the internet which took lots of time and did not always provide the detail we needed and get from your product.

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is fumbling on the internet for answers. We also benefit from the emails with new tax information and issues arising in that arena.

We are completely happy and wish we would have been using years ago.”

– Kimberlee, a satisfied Zip2Tax customer at WIKA Instrument Corporation
