License Fees, Cancellation and Other Changes

ADOR’s Customer Care and Outreach Department assesses TPT license fees when a new license is issued; when an additional location is added (may also be a city fee); when there is a change in business location (there may also be a city fee); when a program city is added; and when the customer requests a reprint. License fees are also assessed when a taxpayer adds a program city to a TPT-2 return not currently in the taxpayer’s profile.

However, ADOR does not assess a fee for a reprint required because of an ADOR error (i.e. a keypunch error on a new license), a mailing address change, change in tax record location or a change in corporate officers. There is also no fee to cancel or reinstate a license.

Businesses that wish to cancel a TPT license or who never officially open their business and wish to cancel can do so in several ways.

  • Through for the fastest results by logging in to the account, select the business by clicking the “View” link in the “Actions” column. Then click “Account Update” and choose the “close account” tab.
  • Submit your last TPT return with “FINAL RETURN (Cancel License)” box checked.
  • Submit a Business Account Update Form with "Cancel effective date" box checked and filled out.
  • Return the license to ADOR with the word “Cancel” written across the front of it and mail it to:

Customer Care and Outreach
Arizona Department of Revenue
PO Box 29032
Phoenix, AZ 85038-9032

  • Or, businesses can visit one of ADOR’s office locations where a customer service representative can assist in canceling the license.


A business that wishes to reinstate a TPT license can do so at no charge, but only if ADOR cancelled it in error. If the license holder cancelled the license, however, the holder must reapply and pay appropriate fees.

Businesses that would like to change a business location or mailing address must complete the Business Account Update form and mail it to Customer Care and Outreach.

If a business changes its name and ownership or location have not changed, the business must notify ADOR in writing by completing the Business Account Update form and paying any applicable fees.

Unfortunately, if business ownership changes, the TPT license is not transferable. Anytime the ownership status changes, a new license number is required. Other situations where a new license may be required includes a sole proprietor becoming a corporation or partnership; a business changing location; and adding other business locations.

Businesses who lose their license can obtain a copy from ADOR for $12 plus any applicable city fees.
