IMPORTANT TRANSACTION PRIVILEGE TAX (TPT) CHANGES
TRANSITION TO CENTRALIZED LICENSING AND REPORTING
The City of Flagstaff is committed to ensuring taxpayers experience a smooth transition in licensing and reporting TPT activities with the Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR). Early transition has begun for licensed businesses ahead of the anticipated start date of January 1, 2017.
To ensure your business activity is reported accurately and completely with ADOR, your business must be licensed with ADOR using the City of Flagstaff region code “FS.” You may begin transitioning your TPT filing and reporting with ADOR by taking the following steps:
1. Register your Flagstaff business location with ADOR electronically. Taxpayer Education Tutorials videos are available at (https://www.azdor.gov/TaxpayerEducation/Tutorials.aspx).
2. If your business is already registered in the AZTaxes.gov system:
- Add “Flagstaff” as a location in the Region Code screen (region code FS).
- Add the appropriate Business Codes as instructed in the Taxpayer Education tutorial videos (https://www.azdor.gov/TaxpayerEducation/Tutorials.aspx).
- It is State law that you file the State’s multijurisdictional TPT-2 tax return form electronically and remit your payment online via AZTaxes.gov (www.aztaxes.gov/Home).
- The filing and payment due dates are listed in the Transaction Privilege and Use Tax Due Date Calendar located on this webpage.
- City business and deduction codes are different than state business and deduction codes of the same business description!
- Please pay special attention when licensing and reporting to ensure both ADOR and City of Flagstaff codes are reported accurately!
- Complete Form 2111 to cancel your City of Flagstaff TPT account
- Please contact us if you have outstanding or amended TPT returns to file or a credit balance on your account
The City of Flagstaff Sales Tax & Licensing Division thanks you for helping make TPT Simplification a success. We are confident these changes will make it easier for all Arizona businesses to report state, county, and city TPT taxes to one jurisdiction.
