Notice back in 2023 of May, Notice 2308, Tennessee Work Tax Act increased business tax filing threshold. With all that being said, this is actually good news. If you are a small business in Tennessee, we’ve always had to pay a business tax. Basically $3,000 or less, up to maybe $10,000 it was zero, right? But now, up to $100,000. That’s right. Doesn’t mean you might not need your business license, it may just mean that you have a zero tax. You need to check with Tennessee Department of Revenue, go onto your TINTAP, check it out. Make sure that you’re not paying taxes, you shouldn’t.
