**  Note:  When the gross income from the sale of a single item of tangible property exceeds five thousand dollars ($5,000.00), the one and sixty nine tenths percent (1.69%) tax rate shall apply to the first five thousand dollars ($5,000.00). Above five thousand dollars ($5,000.00), the measure of sales tax shall be at a rate of one and sixty nine tenths percent (1.69%).  For example if you are purchasing two pieces of jewelry costing  $4,000 each ($8,000 total), that is not considered a single item therefore you would pay 9.5% tax which would be $760.00 making your total purchase  $8,660.  However if you are purchasing one piece of jewelry costing $8,000 the tax would be figured at 7.99% which would be $639.20 so the total of your purchase would be $8,639.20.   

Because the Town of Wickenburg does not have a Tax Department, or Tax Accountant, and we are a member of the State collection system, additional tax related questions should be directed to the

Arizona Department of Revenue

 (602) 255-2060 or (800) 843-7196

 Sales Tax Payments: The Town of Wickenburg is in the state collection system therefore you would obtain your Sales Tax License through the Arizona Department of Revenue.  You would then report and pay your local/town sales tax on the state return under the city code WB.  A license application can be obtained by contacting the Arizona Department of Revenue at: (800) 843-7196
