To apply for a waiver of penalty, please sign into your Tennessee Taxpayer Access Point (TNTAP) account. Select the tax type at the bottom of the screen. Then, under the “I Want To” section in the top right area, click “Petition for Penalty Waiver”.
To apply for a penalty waiver for any other taxes administered by the Department that are not currently filed on TNTAP, you should fully complete a penalty waiver form and submit it to us at the address included on the form.
