The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) recognizes the difficulties many Arizona businesses are experiencing during COVID-19, including their ability to meet transaction privilege tax (TPT) payment timelines.
As a result, department officials are working with each business on a case-by-case basis to determine the best path forward for meeting current tax liabilities.
As part of discussions with customers experiencing TPT pressures, ADOR is assisting businesses in applying for the department’s late payment-late filing penalty abatement program. To request penalty abatement, an authorized official from a TPT business needs to fill out Arizona Form 290 and follow the instructions.
The Arizona Department of Revenue prioritizes working with customers rather than taking enforcement actions when reasonable as this approach is more beneficial to the taxpayer and efficiently serves state and municipal interests.
