STOP THE SOLAR TAX

The Arizona Department of Revenue is preparing to impose a new tax on approximately 25,000 homeowners, businesses and non-profit organizations who have leased solar systems. If you own your rooftop solar system you will not be subject to this new tax, but approximately 80% of the roof top solar systems in Arizona are leased. This is unfair and just wrong. This new tax on leased solar systems could be $10 to $15 per month. This state agency has decided the value of leased solar systems should be included in your property valuation, thus increasing taxes. Governor Brewer can stop this bad idea.
