Business Registration and License Renewal

Business Registration (New for 2018)

The City of Chandler recently passed a new Code Chapter that requires all businesses located in the City to obtain a business registration. This business registration began in 2018 and will help the City with maintaining a list of all businesses located in Chandler. This will allow the City to continue with verifying tax records and assist with public safety inquiries.

Council approved the $45 annual fee for the business registration.

For more information, please visit our Business Registration page or contact our Tax & License Division.


Transaction Privilege Tax Changes (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. 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, you can add these to your license account online with or by filing a Business Account Update form with the Arizona Department of Revenue.

Guidance for Residential Rentals

The Arizona Department of Revenue will have a new transaction privilege tax (TPT) electronic filing program in place for property management companies (PMCs) by the start of 2018 allowing a PMC to report and remit tax to each client's TPT license.

Starting with the January 2018 filing period, PMCs will be able to file and pay transaction privilege tax on behalf of their clients using the new electronic filing program. PMCs will be able to begin licensing to participate in the new program after November 1, 2017.
