Residential Rental is the rental of real property for a period of more than 30 days for residential purposes only and not commercial purposes.
Individual owners of taxable rental properties are required by law to obtain a transaction privilege tax (TPT) license with the Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR), regardless if the owner rents the property themselves or employs a property management company (PMC). A license is only required for cities that impose a tax on residential rental activity.
