The Licensing Division of the Development Services handles applications for business licenses, transportation licenses, and yard sale licenses. The division reviews the applications for compliance with city, state, and federal regulations relating to these activities. Once approved by all applicable city departments, the Licensing Division issues the license to the applicant.
The business licenses are reviewed by various city departments prior to approval. The objective is to ensure that commercial activities are located in an appropriate zoning district and comply with various city ordinances. Fill out a Business License Application Form (PDF) to apply for approval.
If a business is selling a product or engaging in a service subject to TPT, that business will likely need a license from the Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) and a TPT, or business/occupational license, from the city or cities in which the business has a base or operation.
