Nexus describes a connection that must be present before a taxing jurisdiction has the right to impose a tax on an entity's activity. All businesses located in Tennessee have nexus for sales and use tax purposes. Nexus exists for out-of-state businesses with no locations in Tennessee when a business engages in certain activities in this state and makes sales of $100,000 or more to Tennessee customers during the previous tax year. When an out-of-state entity has nexus in Tennessee, the entity must collect and remit sales or use tax on taxable sales into Tennessee.
