Reminder: Transaction Privilege Tax License Renewals for 2021 Due January 1
The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) is sending renewal letters to businesses. If a business is selling a product or engaging in a business activity subject to TPT, the business must renew their Arizona Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT) license.
The due date to renew a TPT license is January 1, 2021. TPT licenses are valid for one calendar year, from January 1 through December 31. Licenses renewed within the calendar year must still be renewed at the start of the following calendar year. Failure to renew or renewals received after January 1 will incur penalties and/or late fees.
All fees are payable to ADOR using the license number issued by the department. The renewal fee is due at the time of renewal and can be paid via AZTaxes.gov with e-check or ACH Debit if that option is already set up on the account.
Arizona does not charge a state “renewal” fee. For a new TPT license issued by ADOR, the cost is $12 plus applicable city fees of up to $50 per jurisdiction.
Out-of-state businesses without a physical presence in Arizona must renew their TPT licenses if they have more than $100,000 in sales to Arizona customers in the current or prior calendar year.
ADOR strongly encourages taxpayers to enroll, file, and pay online via the AZTaxes.gov website for easier renewals and faster processing. State law requires taxpayers with multiple business locations to renew their TPT license electronically from the comfort of your home.
AZTaxes.gov can also be used to update business account information once the account is registered. Please allow up to four hours before using your account for the update to be completed and applied to the account. The account information must be up-to-date before the license is renewed.
How to renew your license on AZTaxes.gov

If the business’ estimated annual combined Arizona, county, and municipal TPT liability is less than $2,000, consider adjusting the filing frequency to annually. If the annual filing change is made in 2020, the change will occur for the 2021 filing period. This reduces the possibility of delinquent returns and payments by decreasing the filing occurrences.
