Account Number Online Search
To look up an account ID for franchise and excise tax, use the tax filing website, the Tennessee Taxpayer Access Point (TNTAP).
Note: Effective May 28, 2018, franchise & excise tax account numbers (now called IDs) have been updated from nine digits to 10 digits, followed by the letters FAE. These letters identify the account as a franchise & excise tax account.
If you had a franchise & excise tax account number before May 28, 2018, the only change to this number is the addition of a zero to the beginning of the number. Examples:
Old account format: 123456789
New account format: 0123456789-FAE
