1. Locate Your Business Tax Account Number(s)

Electronically filing and paying your business tax return will require that you enter your business tax account number(s). If you have previously filed business tax with the Department of Revenue, the account number can be found at the top of your paper return.

If you are unsure whether you have an existing tax account number, please call the Department of Revenue's call center at (615) 253-0600 (Nashville-area and out-of-state) or (800) 342-1003 (statewide toll-free).

2. Obtain a User Name and Password

Once you have located your account number(s), the next step is to obtain a user name and password. This will allow you to electronically file and pay while protecting the privacy of the information you provide. To begin, go to the TN.gov Account Management website.
