Arizona– Important Tax Reporting Changes Effective July 1, 2016: TPT-1 Out, TPT-2 In

SALT Report 3837 – Beginning with tax reporting periods on or after June 1, 2016 the Arizona Department of Revenue will no longer accept the TPT-1 form. Two new forms are available to accommodate location-based reporting for filing periods beginning on or after June 1, 2016. The TPT-EZ is a simplified tax form for businesses with one location or jurisdiction. The TPT-2 replaces the outdated TPT-1 for use by multi-location or multi-jurisdiction businesses.

Changes to Arizona TPT effective July 1, 2016, do not apply to the following non-program cities:

Apache Junction               Glendale              Prescott
Avondale                            Mesa                    Scottsdale
Chandler                             Nogales               Tempe
Douglas                              Peoria                  Tucson
Flagstaff                             Phoenix

DO NOT include the local taxes due to these cities on your tax return. Taxpayers in these cities should continue to report as they have been, using their respective cities’ forms and procedures until centralized reporting takes effect for the non-program cities, which is expected to be later this year.
