For Arizona residents, if you are Single, Married Filing Separately or Head of Household and your Arizona Adjusted Gross Income is at least $5,500 or your Gross Income is at least $15,000 you must file a tax return in Arizona. If you are Married Filing Jointly and your Arizona Adjusted Gross Income is at least $11,000 or your Gross Income is at least $15,000 you must file.
Gross income is easy to figure out. That's all the income you received during the year from wages, investments, interest, etc. When you file your Federal tax return, you'll use your Federal Adjusted Gross Income (gross income less deductions) to determine your Arizona Adjusted Gross Income.
