*Arizona Transaction Privilege Tax Ruling: As stated on page three, "Transactions with the United States Government under other business classifications, such as utilities, telecommunications, job printing, commercial lease, transient lodging, restaurant, and prime contracting, are subject to transaction privilege tax." Therefore, the tax has to be paid because it is levied onto the seller and not onto the consumer directly. In this instance Constitutional immunity for Government buyers does not apply.
