Arizona – Single Point Of Administration Provisions Of TPT Simplification Delayed One Year

SALT Report 3509 – In a letter to Mr. Ken Strobeck, Executive Director of the League of Arizona Cities and Towns, the Arizona Department of Revenue advised that the single point of administrations section of the TPT Simplification plan would be delayed for one year, until January, 2016.  The complexity and scale or the programming neccesary for single point administration was referenced as the cause of the delay.
