State TPT License Renewal
The state of Arizona and its cities and towns are working together to simplify how taxpayers report and pay their transaction privilege tax. ADOR requires all licensed businesses to renew their Arizona TPT license by Jan. 1, 2019. Failure to do so may result in penalties.
Please note that businesses with more than one location will not receive a paper form for renewal and must renew their licences on AZTaxes.gov. Also, taxpayers with an annual TPT or use tax liability of $20,000 or more during the prior calendar year are required to file tax returns electronically (A.R.S § 42-5014) and make tax payments by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). For tax periods beginning on Jan. 1, 2019, the thresholds will lower to annual TPT or use tax liability of $10,000 or more. Failure to comply with the electornic filing and payment requirements may result in penalties.
In the fall, ADOR will be sending renewal letters on how to renew your TPT license. Please note that you want to make sure all information is current before renewing.
TPT Account Updates
ADOR is encouraging TPT taxpayers to ensure their account information is up to date. AZTaxes.gov enables registered businesses to update their accounts, but they must have an e-signature PIN to make changes.
On AZTaxes.gov, taxpayers can do the following:
- Change their mailing address on corporate, withholding and transaction privilege and use tax licenses.
- Add, edit and/or close locations for TPT licenses.
- Cancel or close an existing TPT license or single location on a TPT license.
- Close an account for withholding or TPT licenses.
- Make changes to “Doing Business As” (DBA) name or the business mailing address.
- Add a new reporting jurisdiction, new business code or business or rental location.
Visit azdor.gov to learn more. Taxpayers can also download and complete a Business Account Update Form and send it to ADOR.
Please note that taxpayers in the contracting business, when requesting change(s) to a physical location, legal name and/or business name within the first two years, must have a Bond Rider to match the change (s) requested submitted prior to the request and submitted with the Business Account Update Form.
