Amazon Will Start Collecting Arizona Sales Tax in February

Online retailer Amazon will no longer be Arizona’s duty-free store. Amazon noted in its latest FEC filing that it’s going to start collecting Arizona sales tax on purchases in the state, which currently stands at 6.6 percent. This change comes after quite a bit of complaining from state-level authorities about Amazon skirting the sales-tax in Arizona. Amazon’s SEC filing says the state sent the company a bill for $53 million last year “alleg[ing] that we should have collected a transaction tax that is similar to a sales tax on applicable transactions” from March 2006, through the end of 2010.
