PHOENIX – The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) is assisting businesses with renewing their Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT) License promptly and efficiently. Renewals are due Jan. 1 and penalties will be assessed for all renewals after Jan. 31. In an effort to reduce errors on the taxpayer’s behalf, ADOR offers several pointers.

Before renewing

Enroll, file, and pay online via the website for easier renewals and faster processing. State law requires taxpayers with multiple business locations to renew their TPT license electronically.

Establishing the primary and delegate user access privileges is essential to having access to update and renew the TPT license. See AZTaxes User Access for more information on primary and delegate users.

Update your accounts at any time through by doing the following: 

  • Change the mailing address. (Only for correspondence delivery.)
  • Add, edit, and close locations. (If you moved locations, you must close the prior location and add the new location.)
  • Cancel or close an existing TPT license.
  • Close your entire account.
  • Make changes to the “Doing Business As” (DBA) name. 
  • Add new reporting jurisdictions or business codes. 

Change owner/office information by submitting these changes on the Business Account Update Form 10193

During renewals

  • Businesses with more than one location will not receive a paper form for renewal and must renew their licenses online at
  • TPT licenses are valid for one calendar year, from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31. Licenses renewed within the current year must still be renewed. 
  • Check out the video tutorial on completing a license renewal on AZTaxes, here
  • If you do not see the renewal option within your account, verify you linked your user account to your TPT license or the primary user has given you access to renew the license. See AZTaxes User Access for more information on primary and delegate users. 
  • Pay renewal fees online under “Pay,” then “Pay Outstanding Liabilities.” Renewal fees cannot be paid by credit card. 
  • If you received a paper renewal form, remit your payment with the entire Renewal Form, including “2023 Renewals” and your license number on the paper check. Please send the form and payment together to:
    • Arizona Department of Revenue
      PO BOX 29082
      Phoenix, AZ 85038-9082
  • Licenses that are not renewed will not be canceled. To cancel your existing TPT license, use the Account Update option on or submit a Business Account Update form with a cancel effective date.

After renewing

Verify that you still fit within the same filing frequency going into the 2023 season. TPT filing frequency is determined by the amount of a business’ total estimated annual combined Arizona, county, and municipal TPT liability. If the annual filing change is made in 2022, the change will occur for the next filing period. If there are delinquencies on your business account, the filing frequency cannot be changed.

  • Annual: Less than $2,000 estimated annual combined tax liability
  • Quarterly: $2,000 – $8,000 estimated annual combined tax liability
  • Monthly: More than $8,000 estimated annual combined tax liability

Ensure you pay all liabilities before Jan. 1 to receive your license certificate and avoid penalties.
