$87 Million Unclaimed Refunds for Invalidated 2018 Transportation Tax; Deadline April 9, 2026-Check it out!

Tax Refund Opportunity for Pinal County Business Owners

Consumer Exclusion Highlights Targeted Nature of Refund

According to The Center Square Arizona business owners in Pinal County, Arizona, now have the opportunity to reclaim taxes paid under the invalidated 2018 transportation excise tax. This tax was recently nullified by the state Supreme Court, creating a window for refunds. The Arizona Department of Revenue has set a deadline for applications until April 9, 2026, providing eligible businesses with a chance to recoup taxes paid during the specified period. According to a letter from the Arizona Auditor General approximately $87 million was collected from the tax with an additional $4 million accruing in interest emphasizing the significant financial aspect of this refund opportunity.

Originally intended to fund transportation, the tax structure was invalidated due to its “two-tiered” nature leading to the initiation of the refund process. However, while businesses qualify for reimbursements, consumers impacted by the tax won’t have the same opportunity due to Arizona’s transaction privilege tax status. This distinction underscores the targeted nature of the refund primarily benefiting businesses that filed and paid taxes within the specified timeframe either in Pinal County or with Pinal County customers.
