Transaction Privilege Tax Changes - Tax and License

2017 Update

The State of Arizona and its Cities and Towns continue to work together toward the goal of simplifying the manner in which taxpayers report and pay their Transaction Privilege Tax.  This process is a major undertaking and we appreciate your patience with us, and the Arizona Department of Revenue during the transition.

Please know that if you filed and paid Transaction Privilege and Use Taxes during 2016, a license is required with the Arizona Department of Revenue for Chandler reporting purposes.  The requirements for City licensing are new to the Arizona Department of Revenue and if you encounter issues or need clarification, please contact our office.

Chandler taxpayers should continue to report and pay their city taxes directly to Chandler.  ***This includes the tax filing due in January 2017 for the December 2016 reporting period.***

Starting with the January 2017 tax return (due in February 2017), you will file and pay Chandler tax directly with the Arizona Department of Revenue.  To do this, you will need a State of Arizona Department of Revenue Transaction Privilege and Use Tax license.  If you do not have a State license, please visit to apply online.

In order to report the Transaction Privilege (sales) and Use Tax owed to the City of Chandler, a separate line is needed with the business location code and city code of CH.  If you do not see your location or city code added by the time you file the January 2017 return,  you can add these to your license account online with or by filing a Business Account Update form with the Arizona Department of Revenue.
