Many independent contractors, construction workers, and construction companies are unfamiliar with the complexities of Arizona tax law.

  • There are many exemptions in Arizona that will minimize the amount of taxes you must pay
  • The distinction between employer and independent contractor has major implications for tax withholding purposes. The Arizona Department of Revenue has recently become more aggressive in enforcing tax collection related to employee classification.
