Arizona could pay residents to get concealed carry licenses under new proposal

by Kellan Howell  |  published on January 27, 2016

A new bill, if enacted, could see a tax break for Arizonans who obtain a concealed carry permit and weapons training not currently required by the state.

The measure, sponsored by state House Majority Leader Steve Montenegro, would offer a tax credit of up to $80 toward the cost of a permit and training in the state, reported.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety currently charges $60 for new permits and $43 for renewals. Firearm training costs vary across the state.

    I live in Arizona, that is great and hope it passes! My CCW renewal is up next year and a tax credit would be GREAT!
