Arizona collects $744K from online sales tax law

Arizona has collected $744,000 in taxes for online purchases in the first three months of the year just by adding a line to state income tax forms.

But the new use-tax declaration line is set to go away if the Senate passes a bill approved by the House on Thursday and Gov. Jan Brewer signs it into law.

The Arizona Republic reported the figure in a story Friday.

Taxpayers are required to pay taxes for on-sale purchases or out-of-state purchases where they paid less than the state’s 6.5 percent sales tax rate.

Some taxpayers and accountants complain that few people track their Internet purchases.

A previous state report said Arizona collected nearly $271.8 million in use taxes during the 2009-2010 fiscal year, mostly from businesses.
