Every fourth year, the Tennessee Department of Revenue reissues nonprofit and agricultural exemption certificates of exemption to all current exemption holders. Other exemption certificates are not updated and remain in effect unless there is a change in location requiring the certificate to be reissued.
Renewed certificates are mailed just before the current exemption certificates expire. Holders of nonprofit or agricultural exemption certificates should ensure the Department of Revenue has the correct mailing address on file at all times. If there is a change in the location address, a new application must be submitted with the proper supporting documentation before a new certificate will be issued.
