Arizona – Rental Residences Subject To Rent Tax In Various Cities

Salt Report 3558 – Arizona cities, except Flagstaff and Tuscon, levy some level of rental tax.  Depending on the city a renter may pay 1.5% to 3% tax on the amount of rent paid.

“If you live in Phoenix, for example, you pay a 2 percent tax on your monthly rent bill. If your rent is $1,000, you pay an additional $20 that goes into the city’s general fund. If you live in Cave Creek, you pay an additional 3 percent on your rent, so you would pay an additional $30 each month on your rent of $1,000. ”
