In response to ongoing COVID-19 developments, the Tennessee Department of Revenue (TDOR) has announced that it will extend the deadline for taxpayers to file business tax returns originally due on April 15, 2020 to June 15, 2020. Taxpayers will also not be required to make business tax payments originally due on April 15, 2020 until July 15, 2020. Taxpayers that file returns and make payments before this deadline will not incur late filing penalties or interest.

This extended deadline only applies to county and municipal business tax administered by the TDOR and to returns and payments originally due on April 15, 2020.

A copy of the TDOR’s notice announcing the extension is available here.
