The transition to centralized licensing, reporting and payment of Transaction Privilege (Sales) tax to the Arizona Department of Revenue will begin with the January 2017 tax return which is due in February. This means if you currently report to the City of Tempe, your last tax return to Tempe will be your December 2016 return (filed in January 2017).
How to proceed:
ADOR offers free Taxpayer Education tutorials and this information can be obtained at the State’s website accessible at https://azdor.gov/TaxpayerEducation/Tutorials.aspx.
If you have any non-filed returns or outstanding receivables with Tempe, Tempe is authorized to continue collection for any liabilities and non-filed returns prior to January 2017. For assistance in resolving past due balances or unfiled returns, contact Tempe’s Tax & License office at (480) 350-2955 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the coming months, you will continue to receive information, forms and instructions from both the City of Tempe and the Arizona Department of Revenue. Please watch for this information and respond to the appropriate agency as needed
