City Sales Tax Payments:  Continue to Remit Through the City of Flagstaff

The City of Flagstaff continues to process City sales tax returns and tax licenses until further notice. This notification affects businesses covered by the Transaction Privilege Tax(TPT) licensing and reporting through the City of Flagstaff.  

In June 2016, the Arizona Department of Revenue released programming updates to the State tax collection system.  These changes are related to the State’s plans to combine all sales tax collections and tax licensing from all cities throughout Arizona, including the City of Flagstaff.  

While this programming change included the capability for Flagstaff businesses to report local activity, it is not intended to replace the current local system until the program has been fully tested.  The City of Flagstaff expects that the testing will continue this summer and fall with a release date later this year or early next year at the earliest. The City of Flagstaff will provide ample notification when the system change is complete and the exact date when to use the State system.
Please continue to submit your City sales tax returns to the City of Flagstaff until conversion with the state system is completed.  For additional information contact the City of Flagstaff Sales Tax Division at (928) 213-2250.
