The State of Arizona and its Cities and Towns (Cities) continue to work together to achieve the goal of simplifying the manner in which taxpayers report and pay their Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT) through the centralization of licensing and reporting of TPT liabilities for all Cities with the Arizona Department of Revenue.
- The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) is the central licensing and reporting for Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT), as required by law, effective January 1, 2017.
- ADOR strongly encourages all businesses to register and file their transaction privilege taxes using www.AZTaxes.gov.
- All businesses must file by location number on the city detail section of your return. The location number can be found on your TPT License. Taxpayers registered in AZTaxes may access their location list online.
- State law requires businesses with more than one physical location in Arizona to file tax returns electronically via www.AZTaxes.gov (see A.R.S. § 42-5014.H.)
- ADOR no longer accepts the TPT-1 form for reporting periods beginning on or after June 1, 2016. Two new forms are available to accommodate location-based reporting for filing periods beginning on or after June 1, 2016. The TPT-EZ is a simplified tax form for businesses with one location or jurisdiction. The TPT-2 replaces the outdated TPT-1 for use by multi-location or multi-jurisdiction businesses.
- ADOR staff is available weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. (M.S.T.) if you have questions or need assistance on using AZTaxes.gov, contact us toll-free at 1(844) 698-9176 or by email at AskTPT@azdor.gov.
