Tax Analysts’ New Column Examines Arizona Tax Issues
FALLS CHURCH, Va. – Tax Analysts, the independent, nonprofit provider of federal, state, and international tax news and analysis, is introducing a new monthly column, SALT From My Saddle. Appearing in State Tax Notes and State Tax Today, this new column, by James Busby of the Cavanagh Law Firm, will analyze state and local tax issues in Arizona.

The inaugural column, being published Monday, discusses Arizona’s method of taxing contractors. Busby explains when construction contractors are required to pay Arizona’s transaction privilege tax on the construction materials they purchase, and when they are required to pay the prime contracting tax on 65 percent of their gross receipts under the 2015 amendments to Arizona’s sales tax laws.

Busby has focused on state and local tax issues for nearly two decades. Before entering private practice, he served as chief auditor and principal tax analyst for the Transaction Privilege (Sales) and Use Tax Division of the Arizona Department of Revenue. Busby also coauthored the Judicial Review of Taxation chapter in the Arizona Appellate Handbook published by the State Bar of Arizona, and he lectures extensively on state and local tax topics.
