PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Legislature adopted a major overhaul of the state's complicated sales tax collection system as the session sped to a close.

Cities and towns were able to hold off the overhaul after raising concerns they would lose revenue. But Gov. Jan Brewer made major compromises and the measure finally passed the Senate and House late Thursday night with only one opposing vote.

The overhaul would not affect what ordinary consumers pay at store checkouts.

Instead it will make it easier for businesses that pay the so-called Transaction Privilege Tax. It eliminates multiple audits and filing requirements.

It leaves in place a tax on new construction that funds many city projects in place but eliminates it for companies that do home and other repairs.
