What Tennessee law pertains to open records requests?

The Tennessee Open Records Act allows Tennessee citizens to view government public records that are connected to official business transactions, unless otherwise provided by state law. (See Tenn. Code Ann. § 10-7-501 et seq.)

 The Tennessee Department of Revenue is committed to fulfilling public records requests. The Department strives to balance a taxpayer’s legal right to have certain information kept confidential with a citizen’s right to access records. In fulfilling public records requests, the Department is bound by laws that prevent the disclosure of certain confidential information. (See Tenn. Code Ann. § 67-1-1702).
