The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) requires all licensed businesses to renew their Arizona transaction privilege tax (TPT) license. The cost is $12 for a new TPT license issued by ADOR, plus applicable city fees of up to $50 per jurisdiction. There is no state renewal fee.
Businesses with more than one location must renew their licenses online at AZTaxes.gov. They will need to provide pertinent information, including payment information and an e-signature PIN. Please note that license numbers should remain the same for current TPT-licensed businesses. Once they log into their account to complete the process, business taxpayers have two options:
- To click on License Renewal on the left navigation menu bar.
- To click on License Renewal under Actions on the Business List page.
The license is valid for one calendar year, and businesses must renew annually by January 1. Business owners must pay their renewal fees when they submit their renewal. They can pay with e-check or ACH debit if they have that option set up on their account.
The new TPT license certificates are then generated for each business location on file and sent to the mailing address on file with the department within three to five days of processing the renewal. Businesses will receive one renewal notice per license from ADOR, regardless of the business location.
If a license has incorrect information, business taxpayers can make changes using the Business Account Update process.
Note: Businesses must make the applicable changes before renewing their licenses. They can update their account information on AZTaxes.gov, but should allow up to four hours for the update to appear on their accounts.
Those businesses required to register for TPT prior to operating, but fail to do so, may be subject to penalties. Operating without proper licensing is a class 3 misdemeanor, depending on business activity.
