City of Prescott Sales Tax Change

Starting January 1, 2018, the City of Prescott sales tax rate is increasing by 0.75%, to 2.75%. The combined retail sales tax rate for City of Prescott and State/County will be 9.1%. Rental properties will be at 2.75%, since they are not subject to tax by the State/County. This change does not affect any sales in Prescott Valley, Chino Valley or any other areas outside of Prescott.


You will need to update your software or invoice calculations to calculate the sales tax on sales starting January 1st. Please let us know if you need assistance making these adjustments or have any questions on the changes.

2015 Arizona TPT Tax Simplification

Effective January 1, 2015, the Arizona Department of Revenue will collect all state, county and city sales taxes in Arizona. This means you will no longer be required to file a sales tax report with the City of Prescott. The Prescott sales tax will now be included on the ADOR sales tax form TPT-1. ADOR will also be improving their website for electronically filing of returns. In the coming months you should be receiving an updated TPT-1 form and notices concerning these changes.

Please contact us if you have any questions about these changes or use this link for the Arizona Department of Revenue’s website regarding these changes.
