FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Statement from Senator Vince Leach
on the signing of SB 1752
"Governor Ducey's signature on SB 1752, will have an immediate, positive impact on millions of Arizonans and Arizona businesses.
COVID-19 has had a tremendous effect not only on the health of people in our state, but also on our economy and personal finances.
Many Arizonans and businesses have experienced financial hardships during the pandemic, and this bill will provide immediate tax relief at a time when it is needed the most. Those out of work will now see the first $10,200 in unemployment income excluded from taxation and businesses that participated in the Paycheck Protection Program are provided clarity when filing their taxes. In total, my bill provides more than $600 million in tax relief to Arizonans.
The Legislature stood in unanimous, bipartisan support for this important bill. The vote was 60-0 in the House of Representatives and 30-0 in the Senate.
It is truly gratifying to sponsor a bill that will have such a positive impact on lives in our state."
