Arizona – 2020 Transaction Privilege Tax License Renewals are Coming


The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) will be sending renewal letters to businesses next month to renew their 2020 Arizona Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT) License. A transaction privilege tax license is used for collection and remittance of state, county and city taxes.

Every business licensed with ADOR is required to renew their Arizona TPT license, which is due January 1, 2020.

Before renewing, ADOR encourages businesses to update and verify their account information to prevent unnecessary fees and penalties. The online services portal, AZTaxes.gov, enables registered businesses to update their accounts.  An e-signature PIN is required to make changes.

On AZTaxes.gov, taxpayers can do the following:

  • Change their mailing address on corporate, withholding and transaction privilege and use tax licenses.
  • Add, edit and/or close locations for TPT licenses.
  • Cancel or close an existing TPT license or single location on a TPT license.
  • Close an account for withholding or TPT licenses.
  • Make changes to “Doing Business As” (DBA) name or the business mailing address.
  • Add a new reporting jurisdiction, new business code or business or rental location.

If the business or a location is closed, the license must be cancelled to avoid the renewal requirement, as well as applicable fees and penalties.

On October 1, TPT went into effect for out-of-state businesses without a physical presence in Arizona. They are required to renew their TPT licenses if they meet the following thresholds for sales to customers in Arizona in either the current or prior calendar year. 

  • Marketplace facilitators: $100,000
  • Remote Sellers: $150,000

ADOR strongly encourages taxpayers to enroll to file and pay online via the AZTaxes.gov website for easier renewals and faster processing. State law requires taxpayers with multiple business locations to renew their TPT license electronically.
