Arizona e-File Update

Arizona’s electronic filing system for individual income tax returns is dependent upon the IRS.   

The IRS implemented a new system for electronic filing which required Arizona to implement a new system.

Arizona implemented the new system on January 30, 2013, when the IRS opened the filing season.  Due to the fact that this is a new system, the Arizona Department of Revenue (DOR) is carefully monitoring the return data to ensure that the returns are properly received and processed correctly. Additionally, DOR is ensuring all refunds are issued correctly. 

DOR is working closely with all software vendors to ensure there are no processing issues.  This, however, may cause a slight delay in the processing of tax returns at the start of the e-filing process, but should not create any change in the way Arizona tax returns have been processed in past years.

After preliminary review, we have determined a problem exists when filing returns using an outdated version of software. Please be sure to download the most recent updates from your software vendor prior to submitting your return.

If you have submitted a return and received a rejection and the reason refers to “Schema Version X” as the reason for rejection, please contact your software vendor to resolve the issue.

January 2016 AZTaxes Changes

If you are new to this site, you will find a highly interactive application to create your account and register your business to apply and pay for a transaction privilege tax license or register for withholding.

Existing Users: Several changes may have occurred since you last logged in:

  • Due to increased security, you will be required to answer four security questions (one time measure) and set up an electronic signature in the form of a six (6) to 10 digit PIN. You will need this PIN when you file and pay your TPT-1.
  • Dashboard functionality has increased which means you are able to view your filing history, liability information and due date information.
  • If you have more than one business, you can now link the accounts within your dashboard.
