    For all Arizona cities you did not include a note that the temporary 1% sales tax increase expired May 2013. A note was only included next to the state ranking for Arizona. All rates listed for Arizona cities are now 1 pt lower. Phoenix is now 12.27% instead of the 13.27% listed.

    • The report has been updated to reflect this change and the tax rate change is noted in each Arizona city. Thanks for your input.

    Excellent report. It would be very interesting to measure the impact of property/resort fees in addition to the government taxes.

    I book travel for our Grant Audit Team. Recently found that I need a list of Hotel Room Occupancy Tax rates. I'm hoping this may help in more accurately approximating the room rates for our team.
