Tax Information

The State of Arizona requires anyone who is selling merchandise (either re-sale or original creations) or a service (Autographs, Photo’s, Selfies, Etc.) to obtain temporary sales permits for the collection of sales tax. Thrill Halloween has no role in this process, other than to provide links to the web pages for the convenience of our exhibitors. Any questions regarding these applications should be directed to the State Department of Revenue. Tax inspectors will be on site during load-in to verify exhibitors have completed the necessary tax and business licensing requirements, to expedite your time during load in please have all forms submitted at least two weeks prior to the show.

In coordination with ADOR, the City of Phoenix is encouraging the transition for businesses currently reporting to Phoenix for their business activity ahead of the anticipated State deadline.  In order to ensure that your business activity is reported accurately and completely at ADOR, you may begin applying for new TPT Licenses, and filing and reporting your Transaction Privilege Tax liability due to the City of Phoenix with the Arizona Department of Revenue on your next TPT return due to ADOR.

What’s new in TPT – Transaction Privilege (Sales) Tax Simplification?

  • New TPT Applications: Effective October 1st, Phoenix will no longer accept new TPT applications.  You must apply for a TPT license directly with the Arizona Department of Revenue.
  • TPT License Renewals: The Arizona Department of Revenue will process all TPT license renewals for all jurisdictions this fall. Businesses will receive one renewal notice per license from the State regardless of where the business is located. Please visit the Arizona Department of Revenue’s web page  and your renewal notice in November/December for more information.  See our Transition to ADOR bulletin for specific information related to Phoenix TPT licenses.
  • Centralized Licensing and Reporting: Beginning with your January 2017 TPT return filed in February 2017, the Arizona Department of Revenue will be the single point of administration and collection of state, county and municipal transaction privilege tax. Taxpayers will be able to file and pay for all jurisdictions to the State. This means that if you currently report to Phoenix, your last return filed with Phoenix will be your December 2016 return filed in January 2017.  We strongly encourage taxpayers to file online via the State’s gov website for faster processing.

Fire Marshal Inspections

Before the doors open to the public each day, a final fire department walk through is conducted. This walkthrough is conducted to ensure all safety and fire codes are met. Any issues found will have to be corrected before the public is allowed in. Don’t be the one to cause this delay.  Please follow these tips to ensure you are not. Some common fire code issues that we encounter during our walk through are listed below:

  • You may have only a one day supply of combustibles (handouts, giveaways, etc.) within your booth
  • No empty boxes are allowed anywhere in the booth
  • No combustibles may be stored behind the booth. We do allow the hard plastic carry case for the booth display behind the booth
  • The only electrical extension cords allowed are grounded. You cannot daisy-chain power strips together. No zip cords allowed
  • All exhibit / display construction, DECORATION MATERIAL, and drape must be flame retardant. Oil cloth, tar paper, nylon, plastic cloth, and certain other plastic materials that cannot be rendered flame retardant, through spray or dip application, are prohibited
  • Please have the material’s fire resistant documentation available prior to the show opening, i.e. flame certificate from manufacturer, tag on material, or the product used to treat material – all indicating that the product meets NFPA 701 requirements
  • Pop up tents and canopies require prior approval by the Fire Marshal
