Bill Summaries
H2145: TPT; SERVICES; TUITION SURCHARGE Questions/Comments

Establishes the services classification of transaction privilege taxes and levies a tax of one percent of the tax base on a list of businesses that are not otherwise classified for transaction privilege taxation, including legal and engineering services, real estate services, personal care services, various health and medical services, social services, death care services, management and business support services, repair services, and more. Of the monies collected from the services classification each month, 25 percent must be transferred to the Classroom Site Fund for teacher compensation increases, 25 percent must be transferred to the Financial Aid Trust Fund for financial aid to resident students at state universities, 25 percent must be transferred to the Public Safety Personnel Retirement Fund to pay unfunded accrued liability, and 25 percent must be transferred to the newly established Arizona Higher Education Financial Aid Program Fund. The Commission for Postsecondary Education is required to establish the Arizona Higher Education Financial Aid Program and to develop application and approval criteria for persons to apply to participate in the Program. The Arizona Board of Regents is required to assess a surcharge of $300 each year on tuition paid by each nonresident student, and to deposit the monies in the Program Fund. Establishes criteria for a person to qualify for financial aid from the Program Fund. The Commission is required to distribute monies from the Fund beginning in 2023 to cover the full amount of each qualifying student's tuition and fees at the university or community college where the student is enrolled. The Program terminates on July 1, 2028. Due to a potential increase in state revenue, this legislation requires the affirmative vote of at least 2/3 of the members of each house of the Legislature for passage, and becomes effective on signature of the Governor.
