Arizona Sales Tax Rate Tables

How Much is Sales Tax in the Phoenix Area?

Last updated: January 1, 2015

Here are the retail sales tax rates for the various cities in the Greater Phoenix area, provided to you in table format. As the Phoenix metro area continues to grow and expand, cities in other counties are now increasingly being considered part of the Greater Phoenix area. For an explanation of what the components of our sales taxes are, and which cities tax groceries, visit the main Phoenix area sales tax page

Keep in mind that some cities have different, lower tax rates for large ticket items. Those are items that might cost $2,000 or more. If you are considering buying some large appliances, furniture, a diamond ring or a vehicle, that might make quite a difference! Check your city to determine if the retail sales tax rate is different for higher dollar amounts. Use a search term like "sales tax rates in Tempe AZ" and substitute your city's name to find detailed tax information and the phone number to call with questions.
