The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) is mailing letters to businesses, reminding them to renew their Arizona Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT). If a taxpayer sells a product or engages in a business activity subject to TPT, the business must renew their Arizona Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT) License annually.
The due date to renew a TPT license is January 1, 2022. Licenses obtained within the current year must still be renewed at the start of the following calendar year. A non-renewed license will not be cancelled. Instead, failure to renew or renewals received after January 31 will be deemed late.
Additionally, it is essential to keep your owner or officer information current, as this is how ADOR representatives authorize callers. You can submit these changes on the Business Account Update form.
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". Instead, renewal fees are based on the region location where your business operates. Every year, the fees are reviewed and based on the ordinance of each city/town.
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. Remote sellers and marketplace facilitator licenses do not have renewal fees.
Marijuana excise tax licenses are not required to renew, but marijuana TPT licenses must renew each 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 or office.
AZTaxes.gov can also be used to update business account information once the account is registered. Please allow up to four hours 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
- Go to www.AZTaxes.gov.
- Log in using your username and password.
- Click “License Renewal” in the ‘Action’ section of your Business List or select “License Renewal” on the left-hand navigation bar.
(You will need the pertinent information for renewal, any changes, payment information, and your e-signature PIN.)
If you do not see the renewal option on AZTaxes, you have not linked your account to your TPT license or the primary user has not given you access to renew the license. See AZTaxes User Access for more information on primary and delegate users.

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 2021, the change will occur for the 2022 filing period. This reduces the possibility of delinquent returns and payments by decreasing the filing occurrences.
