During the 50th Second Special Session the Arizona state legislature passed HB 2001, more commonly referred to as the “Jobs Bill.” The promoted intent of this bill is to create a more business-friendly state, which will attract all types of businesses both large and small, create jobs, and provide tax relief to businesses. The legislation focused on several key areas: corporate income, businesses property tax cuts, job training, the Arizona Competes Fund, and the newly formed Arizona Commerce Authority. Though this legislation has been touted as a solution to get Arizona back on its economic feet, one has to wonder at what and whose expense, specifically as it relates to the cost associated with the tax cuts for businesses.
