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.

Look for more enhancements throughout the rest of the year at www.AZTaxes.gov.

TPT Simplification

The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) and Arizona’s Cities and Towns continue to work together to achieve the goal of simplifying the manner in which taxpayers report and pay their Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT).  Due to the complexity in incorporating the City’s requirements into the Department’s information technology system, ADOR will not be the single point of licensing, filing and payment of all TPT on January 1, 2016, as originally planned.


For 2016, taxpayers will continue to file transaction privilege taxes to the state and most municipalities as they do today. Sedona will become a Program City as of January 1, 2016 (Program Cities are the cities for which the ADOR licenses and collects TPT). Taxpayers located in Sedona will report and pay their TPT to the State. The cities of Apache Junction, Avondale, Chandler, Douglas, Flagstaff, Glendale, Mesa, Nogales, Peoria, Phoenix, Prescott, Scottsdale, Tempe, and Tucson will continue to administer their own privilege taxes.
