I will amend my monthly sales and use tax returns to move figures from food sales (5% state tax rate prior to July 1, 2017; 4% state rate effective July 1, 2017) to fully taxable sales (7% state tax rate).  Will this reduce or eliminate my assessment?

You are legally required to accurately report all types of sales on your monthly sales and use tax return.  It would be fraudulent to simply reduce food sales and change those reported sales to fully taxable sales in order to avoid the Retail Accountability assessment.  It is a class E felony to file a fraudulent tax return or evade tax owed to the state of Tennessee.
