Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a tax adviser with over 20 years of experience.
A general contractor would use 015 for their business code in section II col C. This seems to be the area most people have a problem with.
The TPT-1 needs to indicate that the funds you are submitting are designated for your area. This is done under the Transaction Detail section (II). Under Business Description (A), write "the town"; under Region Code (B), write the two digit code for that town or city; in the Business Class (C), write the numeric code of “015”.
Let me know the exact line you are having trouble with and I will assist all I can.

So sorry I should clarify better. We are a general contrator but we also do a ton of work as a sub contractor. We pay taxes on ALL material up front. When I talked to the department of revenue they told me to use code 500. NO?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
also do we need to list each job seprately and the amount we made off each job?
Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 2 years ago
Yes, code 500 will be used as your deduction code. 500 - PC: MAINTENANCE REPAIR Etc CONTRACT with PROPERTY OWNER
The 15 is your State Business Code.
The city Business code is after those.
Yes, the jobs should be listed separately especially to distinguish the descriptions and the difference in your work (general and sub)

what does deduction amount column e refer to?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
what is the accounting credit rate and accounting credit columns refer to?
Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 2 years ago
The amount in Column e is the gross receipts that are deductible or
exempt income.
Deductions are to be itemized by category in Schedule A on page 2 of the TPT‑1 form.
It could include sales for resale; labor or delivery charges for retail sales; sales of exempt manufacturing equipment; and exempt retail food sales. You may not have any amount here.
The accounting credit rate for your classification should be preprinted on your form. If you are preparing a blank form, you can find the accounting credit rates in Table I of the TAX RATE TABLES.
http://www.azdor.gov/Portals/0/TPTRates/201506.pdf
To get the Accounting credit (column J) you multiply column F by column I. Enter the result in column J. This is your accounting credit.

would construction materials be classified as sales for resale?
Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 2 years ago
The retail tax does not apply to the sale of materials to a
taxable prime contractor or a subcontractor if the
materials are incorporated into a construction project. You would not list them as resale

i'm just looking for a deduction code for materials.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
we should add that we are an llc and file as a sole propriertar (sp?)
Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 2 years ago
That would be the 500 code the state agent advised about. That is for subs. The deduction code for materials would be the 500.
