Currently, out-of-state dealers with no physical presence in Tennessee who make $500,000 or more in sales to Tennessee customers must register and collect Tennessee sales and use tax. The $500,000 threshold includes all retail sales made by the out-of-state dealer, including exempt sales, but does not include sales for resale.
NOTE: Beginning October 1, 2020, the sales threshold will be established at $100,000. Out-of-state dealers with no physical presence in Tennessee who make $100,000 or more in sales to Tennessee customers will be required to register and collect Tennessee sales and use tax.
