Step 1: Obtain a Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT) license with the Arizona Department of Revenue. If you have rental income, you must pay taxes on the rent to the Department of Revenue, who forwards the tax collected to the Town of Fountain Hills. Most property owners charge the tenant for the tax on the rental property.
