Workshops to explore new city rental tax


July 29, 2006

The city of Tempe will charge a 1.8 percent privilege (sales) tax on all residential rental units within Tempe effective Oct. 1.

Previously, the tax only applied to an individual who owned two or more residential rental units in Arizona with one of the rentals located in Tempe.

To help citizens understand this new ordinance, the Tax & License Division will hold free, hour-long taxpayer information seminars in City Council Chambers at Tempe City Hall, 31 E. Fifth St.:

Aug. 9 and Sept. 13, from 10-11 a.m., 2-3 p.m. and 7-8 p.m.

This change is one out of the nine recommendations given to the City Council by the Ad Hoc Rental Housing Task Force created in June 2005 to develop new ideas to reduce the negative effects of rentals on single-family neighborhoods.

For more information on this change, call (480) 350-2955.
