Arizona Measure Seeks Tax Credit For Concealed-Carry Training And Permits

posted on January 26, 2016

A new proposal by Arizona state House Leader Steve Montenegro would provide a dollar-for-dollar income tax credit for the cost of training to obtain a concealed-carry permit. The proposed measure would offer a tax credit of up to $80 towards the cost of training in the state, which ranges from about $50 to $115, and for permits, which costs $60 for new permits and $43 for renewals.

A CCW permit holder himself, Montenegro said the classes teach more than how to safely handle a firearm—they also familiarize people with laws on the use of deadly force as well as when not to use a gun. “We want to promote people being educated in having CCW permits,” he said. “We value those that are able to take these classes and help us with safety.”
