Phoenix, AZ—The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) plans to mail renewal letters to business owners this month advising them to renew their Arizona Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT) License before January 1. Penalties will apply to late renewals.
Businesses are encouraged to update and verify their account information annually to prevent unnecessary fees and penalties. The online services portal, AZTaxes.gov, enables registered businesses to update their accounts at any time. An e-signature PIN is required to make changes.
ADOR advises taxpayers to enroll now on the AZTaxes.gov website for easier renewals and faster processing and to avoid unnecessary fees and penalties. State law requires taxpayers with multiple business locations to renew their TPT licenses electronically.
On AZTaxes.gov, taxpayers can do the following:
- Change their mailing address.
- Add, edit, and close locations.
- Cancel or close an existing TPT license.
- Close an account.
- Make changes to the “Doing Business As” (DBA) name or the business mailing address.
- Add new reporting jurisdictions or business codes.
Keep your owner/officer information current. You can submit these changes on the Business Account Update form.
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. Licenses that are not renewed will not be canceled.
Out-of-state businesses without a physical presence in Arizona must renew their TPT licenses if they have more than $100,000 in sales to Arizona customers in the current or prior calendar year.
Marijuana excise tax licenses are not required to renew, but marijuana TPT licenses must renew each year.
