TRANSACTION PRIVILEGE TAX (TPT) SIMPLIFICATION 

The State of Arizona and its 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). We want to ensure that there is a smooth transition in reporting and paying all TPT transactions. Working toward this end, the Arizona Department of Revenue is requiring all State TPT taxpayers to renew their licenses with the Department and continue to renew their licenses with the appropriate City.  Both the State and the Cities are committed to making this transition as easy as possible. We are confident these changes will make it easier for Arizona businesses to report their State, County and City TPT taxes.

The City of Bullhead City is part of the state collection system.  When you are preparing your Bullhead City tax return you will use the state tax form and submit the payment and return to the Arizona Department of Revenue.  Business codes and deductions codes can be found at http://www.azdor.gov/TPTSimplification.aspx.

TPT License Renewals
Every business licensed with the Arizona Department of Revenue is required to renew their Arizona transaction privilege tax license. The license is valid for one calendar year and must be renewed annually. The renewal is due January 1 of each year. There is no State renewal fee, and there is no Bullhead City renewal fee. You must complete and submit this form to the Arizona Department of Revenue even if you do not have any changes.  If you do not receive your notice by December 31st, please call 602-542-5027. It may take up to forty five days to process your renewal.
