Last week, BfA broke the news that Arizona is suing California in the U.S. Supreme Court to end the Golden State’s (allegedly) unconstitutional taxing of Arizona LLCs.
Although California has not yet responded – either to our questions or to the AZ Attorney General’s suit in the Supreme Court – we have heard back from AG Brnovich’s office. Here are some highligts:
(1) California was given a courtesy heads-up before last week’s filing;
(2) The AGs office did not discuss this or coordinate this suit with Governor Ducey’s office. Not that that was necessary, even though the Governor has also been known for verbally going after Arizona’s neighbor to the west… and Ducey’s gubernatorial counterparts; and
(3) the AGs office has discussed the issue with other states and expects to get some support for its position that California’s unconstitutionally taxing across state lines.
