It’s time to ban forever any sales tax on professional services that Arizonans use every day – services ranging from advertising to haircuts to rents to manicures to medical care. These services are not currently taxable, and the amendment would finally stop any efforts to impose new taxes on services.
We are excited to file the Protect Arizona Taxpayer Act today. The constitutional amendment will protect Arizona taxpayers from having to pay sales tax on services in the future. As a small business owner, I worry that the politicians are going to try to add a new tax on all Arizona taxpayers. We should not add new taxes on buying a home, cutting your hair, getting your car fixed or even taking your pet to the veterinarian. This simple amendment will protect all of us from a potentially huge new tax burden.Holly Mabery
The Protect Arizona Taxpayers Act would provide critical protection to Arizona working families. Childcare is one of the most important and largest expenses parents face. A service tax would increase the cost of childcare adding an unfair burden on working families. This initiative will make it possible for parents across the state to rest easy knowing there is one less cost to worry about.James Emch
The Protect Arizona Taxpayers Act is right for Arizonans and right for Arizona businesses. We already pay our fair share of taxes and this would protect all of us from an additional burdensome tax.Michelle Ahlmer
