Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Steve Jasper provided comments for an article outlining the November 28 ruling by the Tennessee Court of Appeals enforcing the application of the state’s business tax. The business tax, while in existence for more than 45 years, requires certain businesses that sell goods or services to Tennessee customers to pay a tax. As Steve points out in the article, the “case at hand is a good example of the lack of understanding about the business classifications and activities subject to the tax and what rates apply.”

The full article, “Tennessee Ruling on Alarm Sales a Wake-up Call,” was published by Bloomberg BNA’s Tax Management Weekly State Tax Report on December 2, 2016.
