All businesses located in the City of Scottsdale must be licensed before beginning operation. If a business has more than one location in the city, each location must have a separate business license.

Businesses that are required to remit transaction privilege tax (most often called sales tax) must obtain a Transaction Privilege Tax License. A separate transaction privilege license is required from the State of Arizona.

Businesses that do not need a privilege tax license must obtain a Business, Occupational and Professional License.

License applications for Scottsdale may also be obtained by mail or fax by calling 480-312-2400 or in person at the Tax & License Office at 7447 East Indian School Road, Suite 110.
