Licensing & Tax Info – Arizona

To be able to sell beads & jewelry at the Greater Phoenix (in the City of Mesa) & Tucson AZ show, there are a few things that need to be done. There is $12/location cost to get a license through the Arizona Department of Revenue and a $20/location city fee for Mesa and Tucson.

  1. GET A TPT LICENSE If you aren’t already registered with the Arizona Department of Revenue to file/pay taxes you must do that in advance of the show.  www.aztaxes.gov. On the home click REGISTER A NEW BUSINESS. Follow the steps. You may need to already have an EIN to complete this process. Here is a link to the printable form. FAQ
  2. IF YOU HAVE A TPT LICENSE add Mesa and/or Tucson to your current TPT by signing in to your online account with Arizona.
  3. CITY OF MESA & TUCSON BUSINESS LICENSE You are not required to get a individual city business license since it is on the AZ TPT jointly.
  4. SELLING TO TAX EXEMPT CUSTOMERS To sell to customers that are tax-exempt and have a TPT License of their own, you will need to have them each sign (for your records) a form 5000A from the Arizona Department of Revenue.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON DOING THE MESA & TUCSON SHOWS, DO YOUR PAPERWORK AT THE SAME TIME TO SAVE TIME AND ENERGY.
