Arizona TPT Changes, May 2015


 Yuma, Arizona.

Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) will eventually become the single point of licensing, filing and payment of all TPT. Currently, many counties and cities administer their own TPT, making compliance challenging for businesses.

Beginning May 1, 2015, ADOR will commence administration of the 2% hotel/motel tax and the 2% restaurant and bars tax for the City of Yuma. According the ADOR May Transaction Privilege and Other Tax Rate Tables, these are not new taxes. Prior to May 1, 2015, they “were self-collected by the City.”

Additional information about TPT Simplification is available through ADOR.
