PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says she’s pushing hard for the
Legislature to reform the sales tax system to make it simpler for businesses to
report and pay what they owe.
She promised the reforms in the sales tax system proposed by a task force she
created last year will eliminate the need for businesses with sales in multiple
locations to file dozens of forms a month.
Brewer also says she is committed to giving schools the resources they need to
implement required new standards.
Brewer and Legislative leaders spoke Friday at the Arizona Chamber of Commerce
and Industry’s annual Legislative forecast luncheon in Phoenix.
House Speaker Andy Biggs says he supports the sales tax reform plan but is
listening to cities and towns worried about losing construction tax revenue.
