Arizona has reciprocal taxation agreements with California, the District of Columbia, Indiana, Oregon and Virginia. Residents of any of these states who work in Arizona can request an exemption from income tax withholding in Arizona by filing Form WEC, Withholding Exemption Certificate.  
Part-time or seasonal agricultural workers are exempt unless the workers' principal duties involve operating mechanically driven devices. However, persons engaged in other agriculture-related employment, which is not seasonal, are subject to withholding.
