There are two different types of licensing for your business in the Town of Gilbert: Business License and Transaction Privilege (Sales) Tax License. Here are some of the main points and differences between the two.
When applying you need a NAICS code which can be found here
Some businesses would need a business license, but don’t have taxable business activity so don’t need a TPT License from the Arizona Department of Revenue, and vice versa. For example, if you were a contractor doing work in Gilbert but not based here, then you would need a TPT License to report tax, but not a business license.
For Special Events: If you are going to be a vendor for a trade show, farmers market, or a festival in Gilbert, you might need a business license, and you might need a TPT license.
