Instructions: Business Tax Registration Application
Gene
ral Information
The Business Tax Application is used to apply for tax registration for Tennessee's business tax. This application
cannot be used to register for other Tennessee tax obligations. Businesses must register for sales tax, franchise
and excise tax, and other taxes online at www.TN/gov/revenue or by paper application.
Registration for business tax using this application will not be complete until you have paid the business license fee
and obtained your business license from the appropriate county clerk and, if applicable, your city business tax
official.
You must submit a fully completed application in a timely manner to ensure that you are properly registered for
this tax or you may make your application online. For information on how to register your business online, visit the
Tennessee Department of Revenue’s website at www.TN/gov/revenue and click on E-file and Pay.
You must complete one application for each business location. Upon registration, your county clerk or city official
will issue your business tax license. A $15 fee is required for your initial license. Once registered, the local
licensing
official will send your record electronically to your city or county official based on your location. You must
also pay
the required $15 fee for the initial license at the appropriate city/county official's office.
A standard business license is renewed by the annual payment of tax to the Tennessee Department of Revenue.
Once this tax is paid each year, the county clerk or city official will provide a license for the next year. There is no
charge for a renewal license.
Bu
siness tax minimal activity licenses are renewed each year by payment of an annual $15 fee.
It is important that you notify the Tennessee Department of Revenue if:
The business ownership changes in any manner including:
o
selling or closing of the business,
o
adding or changing partners,
o
any transfer or change in the ownership of the business,
o
any change in corporate structure requiring a new charter or certificate of authority; or
The business location changes, or there is a change to your business classification.
