Chandler business community invited to public meeting to review new business registration proposal

The City of Chandler will host a public meeting at 4 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017, to present a proposed registration process to members of the local business community. The meeting will include a presentation by City staff followed by a question and answer session. It will be held in the City Council Chambers at 88 E. Chicago St., within the City Hall complex.
 
The State of Arizona took over administration of the Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT) from cities earlier this year. Previously, the City issued TPT licenses for all businesses and was able to track and analyze businesses operating in the community. The need for a new business registration process emerged because the State doesn’t issue TPT licenses for all businesses and restricts Chandler’s ability to share information about the businesses operating within the City.
 
The new business registration process will provide Chandler with a complete list of all businesses operating within the City and demographic data that can be utilized for economic development, public safety and other purposes. Registering businesses will strengthen the City’s relationships within the business community, increase consumer confidence and protect taxpayers. 

Questions about the public meeting or the proposed registration process can be directed to Danielle Wells at 480-782-2278 or danielle.wells@chandleraz.gov.
