What are exceptions to the public record law?

The two principal types of records that the Department of Revenue may not disclose to the public are tax records and motor vehicle records. (See Tenn. Code Ann. §§ 67-1-1702, 55-25-104).

While Tennessee strongly encourages disclosure of public records, the Department of Revenue is required by law to maintain these types of records as confidential unless the person making the request sufficiently establishes that an exception to the confidentiality laws applies.
