Electronic Filing

Tennessee law allows the Department of Revenue to require certain taxes be filed and paid electronically. Click on the tax type below to learn more about the electronic filing requirements for each tax and to visit the online filing website for that tax.

Sales tax, including television and telecommunications sales tax, can be filed and paid on the Tennessee Taxpayer Access Point (TNTAP).  A TNTAP logon should be created to file this tax.

All business tax returns must be filed and paid electronically. Your electronic payment can be easily submitted with your return using the business tax online filing application. Please note: business tax is not yet available in TNTAP.

Exceptions: Only current period returns with due dates on or after January 15, 2015 can be filed using the business tax online filing application. To file a transitional or prior period, please file using a paper tax return. Paper returns can be found here.

There is an electronic filing system in place for processing of IRP applications and filing IFTA quarterly tax returns. 

This service is available for free, and it will automatically perform all calculations based on data entered.

Establishing an Account

In order to establish an electronic filing account the following information should be emailed to DGIFTA/IRP.e-file@tn.gov :

  • IRP/IFTA Account Name
  • IRP Account Number
  • IFTA Account Number
  • Name of person(s) keying transactions
  • Contact person(s) telephone number
  • Contact person(s) e-mail address

Once an e-file account is established, you will no longer receive International Registration Plan renewal applications and the International Fuel Tax Agreement quarterly tax returns in the mail. If filing electronically creates a hardship, please submit written notification to the Motor Carrier Section in order to make other arrangements. You can find contact information for Motor Carrier on the Contact Us page of this website.

IRP schedules and invoices may be printed from the system, and you can mail your payment along with required documents that are specified on our checklist. IFTA quarterly tax returns may also be printed from the system, and you can send your payment along with your return. All returns, tax information, and tax administration information is kept confidential.

Liquor-by-the-drink tax can be filed and paid on the Tennessee Taxpayer Access Point (TNTAP). A TNTAP logon will be needed to file this tax online, and the same logon information can be used for submitting sales tax.
