Sales and Use Tax in Tennessee

November 27

Learn detailed information on sales and use tax rules and regulations in Tennessee.

Many businesses are required to collect and remit sales tax or pay use tax in Tennessee, but they often do not understand the events that trigger sales and use tax liability or the duty to collect sales tax. Even if they are generally familiar with sales and use tax obligations, businesses often do not understand precisely which transactions are subject to the tax and which transactions or items are excluded, exempt, or otherwise not subject to sales and use tax. This topic helps the persons responsible for indirect taxation to understand how to navigate issues related to Tennessee sales and use tax, including identifying how the tax is calculated and which transactions and items are subject to the tax. The content also explains the audit and refund claim process in Tennessee. Failing to timely and properly pay sales and use tax in Tennessee can lead to significant interest bills and penalties. This information is critical for businesses selling to customers in Tennessee so they can ensure they are meeting their sales and use tax obligations.
