New Website Makes Filing Taxes Easier

The Tennessee Department of Revenue has a new website called TNTAP, or the Tennessee Taxpayer Access Point.

One exciting new feature of TNTAP is that it allows third parties, including CPAs and tax preparers, to gain access to their clients’ accounts. It’s very important that CPAs and tax preparers working on behalf of a taxpayer register as third parties and do not register as the taxpayer themselves.  Please watch this video to learn how to set up third-party registration. After you register as a third-party, you can then gain access to your clients’ accounts by following this process.

If you have more questions about TNTAP please visit our help site and watch our how-to-videos.

Please note: tax returns and payments for the February 2017 tax period will be considered as filed on time if they are submitted no later than March 31, 2017.

What tax types are available now on TNTAP?

The following tax types are now available in TNTAP. Read on for information about what you can do for each tax type.

Sales and use tax

TNTAP offers several new features for filing and paying sales tax in Tennessee. If you have previously filed this tax electronically through the Department of Revenue’s website, you will need to create a new username and password for this new website. By creating a TNTAP logon, users can:

  • register new business locations
  • access account information
  • edit account information such as name, address and contact information
  • view correspondence and send messages to the Department
  • submit electronic tax returns and payments
  • view and amend tax returns

One new feature of TNTAP is consolidated sales tax filing. Taxpayers with more than one location registered for sales tax will report tax information for all locations on one tax return. Because all locations will be reported in the same filing, all sales tax locations will need to be filed using the same filing frequency in TNTAP. Examples:

  • Business A has five sales tax accounts. Three accounts file monthly and the other two file quarterly. All locations should now file monthly.
  • Business B has ten sales tax accounts. Seven accounts file annually and three accounts file quarterly. All locations should now file quarterly.
