The State of Tennessee is allowing a deduction for accounting and remitting sales tax for dealers registered in Tennessee, effective July 1, 2022. Dealers are eligible for vendor’s compensation deduction equal to 2% of the state tax due, not to exceed $25 on returns filed for tax periods beginning or after 7/1/2022 and ending on or before 6/30/2023. This does not apply to local sales tax.
Returns must be filed timely and taxes paid timely. Instructions can be found on the Tennessee Department of Revenue site here (see Line 18).
