New on TNTAP

Most TNTAP features require a TNTAP username and password.  We encourage  you to make sure you have all the information you will need to log into TNTAP.  

Click the links below to download a checklist to help you gather the information you need to create a TNTAP username and password (we call this a "TNTAP logon").

Click below for more information about how the tax or fee is filed using TNTAP:

  • Some return and payment options will be available in TNTAP without the need to create a TNTAP username and password. We call this a “non-logon” option. This includes:
    • Minimum $100 franchise & excise tax return
    • Payments (including extensions, estimated, and return payments)
    • Franchise and excise tax exemption application and renewal (FAE 183)
    • A tax preparer or client can make a payment without logging in, even if the return is submitted using software. These non-logon features are only available for these tax types after they go live in TNTAP at the end of May.
  • Many of the great features of TNTAP are only available by creating a TNTAP logon. Some of the benefits of having a TNTAP account include:
    • Filing a franchise & excise tax return (only the minimum $100 franchise and excise tax return can be submitted without a logon)
    • Viewing carry forwards and estimated payments on franchise & excise tax accounts
    • Sending messages to the Department
    • Viewing account payments, returns, and balances
    • Updating business information such as name, address, and contacts
  •  Many of the great features of TNTAP are only available by creating a TNTAP logon. Some of the benefits of having a TNTAP account include:
    • Filing a business tax return
    • Sending messages to the Department
    • Viewing account payments, returns, and balances
    • Updating business information such as name, address, and contacts
  • Business tax returns and payments filed after the end of May 2018 will be filed in TNTAP.
  • Once in TNTAP, business tax accounts will be filed on a consolidated return, just like sales tax. This means that businesses will have only one business tax account, regardless of how many locations that business has. Each location will have a location ID for tracking and reporting activity at that location, but all locations will be reported on the same business tax return.
  • Business tax accounts will be given new account numbers once they are converted to TNTAP.  However, you will be able to use any of your current business tax account numbers when setting up your TNTAP logon.  Click here for more information about what you will need to create your logon.  
  • If you are unsure whether there are any outstanding returns or payments on a business tax account, we encourage you to contact the Department to correct any account issues to ensure that businesses can renew their business licenses with local governments.
  • Taxpayers without a FEIN or social security number on their account will be unable to create TNTAP logons online once business tax is available to file in TNTAP. If you believe a business has previously not provided one of these required numbers, please contact the Department to update the account’s registration information.

 

  • Hall income tax returns for taxpayers with a December 31 fiscal year end are due by April 17th, 2018.
  • Some return and payment options will be available in TNTAP without the need to create a TNTAP username and password. We call this a “non-logon” option. This includes:
    • Hall income tax return filing
    • Payments (including extensions, estimated, and return payments)

If you do not have all of the items listed on the Motor Carrier checklist, or have a specific question, we recommend you contact the Department’s Motor Carrier section as soon as possible. We anticipate high call volumes and long hold times around due dates and the upcoming TNTAP release in late May, so call as soon as you can with any questions to avoid that inconvenience.
