Arizona Property Tax Break For Business Equipment Amendment, Proposition 116 (2012)
|Referred by:||Arizona State Legislature|
|Status:||On the ballot|
Text of the measure
The summary of the measure reads as follows:
|“||A Concurrent Resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Arizona; Amending Article IX, Section 2, Constitution of Arizona; Relating to property tax exemptions.||”|
The main campaign in favor of the measure is Vote Yes on 116.
- The campaign states on their website, "When our small businesses invest in new equipment and machinery they also must hire new workers to operate those machines. The Small Business Job Creation Act rolls back Arizona’s heavy equipment and machinery tax that’s owed before any new workers are hired or any new production is realized. This burdensome equipment and machinery tax makes it much harder to attract new businesses to Arizona and discourages our home-grown small businesses from taking the risk of expanding and creating more jobs."
Path to the ballot
A majority vote is required in the Arizona State Legislature to send a constitutional amendment to the ballot. Arizona is one of ten states that allow a referred amendment to go on the ballot after a majority vote in one session of the state's legislature.
