Tennessee Department Of Revenue Extends Tax Filing And Payment Deadlines For Certain Taxes

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

In light of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the Tennessee Department of Revenue has extended the tax filing and payment deadlines for certain taxes.

The filing deadlines for Franchise and Excise Tax and Hall Income Tax returns originally due April 15, 2020, have been extended to July 15, 2020.  Interest and late filing penalties will not be applied to returns filed and payments made on or before this extended due date. 

More information regarding deadline extensions for these taxes can be found in important notice #20-05 and important notice #20-06 on the department’s website.

The filing deadline for Business Tax returns originally due April 15, 2020, has been extended to June 15, 2020.  The Business Tax is a tax on gross receipts and applies to most businesses that sell goods or services.  More information regarding this extension can be found in important notice #20-07.

“We are committed to helping taxpayers,” Revenue Commissioner David Gerregano said. “We know that taxpayers are doing all they can to meet the current challenges while continuing to comply with state tax requirements.  We hope to offer some relief through the extension of these deadlines.”

Beyond extending certain tax deadlines, the department is available to assist business owners who may be unable to pay their taxes or who file them past the deadline. Taxpayers can request penalty waivers or ask for a payment plan that provides monthly payments over time. The department will review these requests on a case-by-case basis to ensure taxpayers needs are best met.

Assistance is available via telephone at 615-253-0600, email at Revenue.Support@tn,gov , or through the online Revenue Help feature, where taxpayers can search and find answers to their questions.
