Due to a recent amendment to A.R.S. § 42-5009(S), Qualified Healthcare Organizations which were previously required to obtain an annual transaction privilege tax (TPT) exemption certificate from the Department are no longer required to do so after they obtain an exemption letter with an exemption period that starts from January 1, 2024. Those letters will remain valid until the organization no longer qualifies.

Note: If the Qualified Healthcare Organization no longer qualifies for the exemption letter, it is their responsibility to:

  • Notify the Department and any vendors they have supplied it to that they no longer qualify for the exemption, and
  • Discontinue using the exemption letter.

Regardless of the Qualified Healthcare Organization’s notification to the Department and its own vendors, if they no longer qualify for the exemption letter – yet continue to utilize it – then they are liable for any tax, penalty, and interest from the date they no longer qualify, that the seller would have been required to pay if the seller had not been given the exemption letter by the healthcare organization.


Businesses should submit any necessary updates to ensure their account is in good standing. If the business or a location is closed, the license must be canceled or the location removed to avoid renewal requirements, as well as applicable fees and penalties.

Businesses should keep their owner/officer information current, as this is how ADOR representatives authorize callers. Owner/officer changes are submitted through the Business Account Update form.

Taxpayers can watch the Business Account Update tutorial to learn how to properly complete the paper form.


The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) requires businesses to renew their Arizona Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT) license before January 1. If a taxpayer sells a product or engages in a business activity subject to TPT, the business must renew their TPT License annually.

Renewal Due Date
Renewals are due January 1, 2024. Penalties will apply to renewals received after January 31, 2024.

Unrenewed license will not be canceled. To cancel your existing TPT license, use the Account Update option on AZTaxes.gov or submit a Business Account Update form with a cancel effective date.

Failure to renew, or renewals received after January 31, will be deemed late and will incur penalties, and/or late fees.

Remote sellers and marketplace facilitators without a physical presence in Arizona must renew their TPT licenses if they have more than $100,000 in gross sales to Arizona customers in the current calendar year. If a remote seller or marketplace facilitator has not reached the applicable threshold in the current calendar year, they may cancel their license. If the threshold was met in the current calendar year but will not be met in the new calendar year, the business may consider canceling their TPT license for 2024. Unrenewed licenses will not be canceled.

Marijuana excise tax (MET) registrations are not required to be renewed, but marijuana TPT licenses must be renewed each year.

Renewal Fees
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. All fees are payable to ADOR including the license number and “2024 Renewals” on the payment.

Renew Online
State law requires taxpayers with multiple business locations to renew their TPT license electronically.

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.)


In an effort to assist taxpayers through the process and reduce errors, ADOR offers the following guidelines:

  • Businesses with more than one location must renew their licenses online.
  • Licenses renewed within the current year must still be renewed.
  • If you do not see the renewal option on AZTaxes, you may have not linked your user 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.
  • Pay renewal fees online under “Pay,” then “Pay Outstanding Liabilities.” Renewal fees cannot be paid by credit card.
  • If the business’ estimated annual combined TPT liability is less than $2,000, consider adjusting the filing frequency to annually. If the annual filing change is made in 2022, the change will occur for the 2023 filing period. If there are delinquencies on your business account, the filing frequency cannot be changed.
