TPT Update

Nearly 250 financial professionals from across Arizona filled the February 25 TPT Update session hosted by CFMA VoS to hear Craig McPike, Christie Comanita and David James review legislative updates and procedural guidance for the recent changes to the Contracting TPT.  For those who missed it, here's an update from our very own expert, David James:

As of February 24, 2015 the legislative bills passed by the House and Senate were signed into law by Governor Ducey.  The Overview provided herein reflects a summary of these legislative changes (in green), compared to the TPN 14-1 posted on the AZDOR website (in yellow).  Be advised, the TPN 14-1 has been removed from the DOR website.  This Overview compares the TPN 14-1 document originally posted by the DOR, to the current legislative  law passed by these bills.

The DOR plans to post another TPN, updated for the new legislation; but the timing of this posting is not yet determined.  While we expect this TPN to substantially mirror the Overview, there is no guarantee here - so you must keep tuned in to final postings by DOR.
