AZ passes conformity at last

In the “better late than never maybe” category, the Arizona legislature passed conformity to the federal tax code at the end of May. The law, HB 2757, fully conforms Arizona to the federal tax reform law retroactively to 2018.

For 2019, tax brackets and numerous other changes attempt to restore the tax situation to close what Arizona’s tax burden was before than reform conformity. For more info:
