Arizona Registrar of Contractors

Please keep your TPT number

You may have received a notice from the Department of Revenue stating, "[i]f you are a contractor whose only business is to enter into contracts with the owner of real property for the maintenance, repair, replacement or alteration of existing property, beginning January 1, 2015, you do not need to have a transaction privilege tax (TPT) license."

Unfortunately, this guidance did not consider statutes governing the Registrar of Contractors. ARS 32-1122(B)(1)(h) requires all applicants and licensees provide the ROC with a TPT to obtain or renew a contractor license. The ROC has asked the legislature to make these laws more consistent by removing this TPT requirement. Until this change is made, contractors should maintain their state TPT license.

Notice of Hearing

If the Respondent properly files a timely written answer to the Citation and Complaint, the Legal Department will request that a hearing date be assigned by the Office of Administrative Hearings.

When a hearing date is assigned, the Legal Department will mail a Notice of Hearing to both the Complainant and Respondent.

The Notice of Hearing is a written document which advises the parties of the following:

  1. Date of the hearing.
  2. Time of the hearing.
  3. Location of the hearing.
  4. Name of the assigned Administrative Law Judge.
  5. That the parties must show up at the hearing and be prepared to present their case and evidence.
  6. That if a party fails to show up at the hearing the ruling will likely be against the party failing to show up.
    (Note that if both parties fail to show up the ruling will likely be against the Complainant because the Complainant has the burden to prove the case.)
  7. That the parties may, but do not have to be, represented by an attorney.
  8. That requests for continuance must be filed with the Administrative Law Judge with a copy to the Registrar.
  9. That subpoenas must be prepared by the requesting party, reviewed and signed by the Administrative Law Judge and served by the party.
  10. That if the Respondent is found to be in violation of any of the charged statutes, its license status and prior record with the agency will be considered in mitigation or aggravation when arriving at an appropriate penalty.
