How do I renew my business licenses? My local clerk said I would have to renew through the Department of Revenue.

The renewal process is simple. You must electronically file your annual county or city business tax return for the license to be renewed through the Department of Revenue’s filing program. You must also report your gross receipts for the reporting period and pay the business tax due on the return.

Business tax can be filed electronically in TNTAP here:

In TNTAP, the business tax account is consolidated; therefore, the gross receipts for all locations will be reported on one return.

Once your return and tax payment have posted to your business tax account, the Department will notify the respective county or city business tax official that your liability has been paid for the reporting period. The local business tax official can then issue you a renewal business license.
