Webcast: Arizona Passthrough Entity Tax and Arizona Small Business Income Tax (8-11:30)

Online registrations are currently closed, please call (602) 324-6847 for additional registration options


The Arizona legislature in 2021 enacted bills creating two new income taxes that clients will actually want to volunteer to pay in many cases, the Arizona Small Business Income Tax (effective beginning with 2021 returns) and the Arizona Passthrough Entity Tax (effective beginning with 2022 returns). 

In this program we’ll look at both taxes, outlining why each one was enacted, how they can save clients either federal income taxes (the passthrough tax) or Arizona income taxes (the small business tax), and the requirements for taxpayers to make proper elections to have these taxes apply.
