Tennessee Department of Revenue Erroneously Assessed Some Taxpayers Affected by March Storms

November 5, 2021

Due to a system issue, the Tennessee Department of Revenue erroneously assessed some taxpayers affected by the March 2021 storms who were granted deadline extensions under important notice #21-07.

As long as these affected taxpayers submitted an appropriate extension by Aug. 2, 2021, and filed their franchise and excise tax returns by Oct. 15, 2021, they should not owe penalty and interest. If you believe your client received penalty and interest in error, please call 615-253-0700 or email revenue.support@tn.gov. The Department has stated that it regrets any confusion or concern these notices caused, and it is working quickly towards a solution with the Department's systems team.
