All professional privilege tax returns, due June 1, 2014, must be filed electronically. Taxable professionals holding an active license in Tennessee must pay the $400 tax. More information on Tennessee’s professional privilege tax can be found online at http://www.tn.gov/revenue/tntaxes/proftax.shtml.

Professional privilege tax returns can be filed electronically either by individuals, or by companies who file and pay for multiple individuals.

The Department will only be mailing newly licensed taxpayers (licensed after June 1, 2013) a Professional Privilege Tax Return.

To electronically file the tax return, you must have either your Social Security Number or your Professional Privilege Tax account number. If you do not know your account number, please use the online look-up available on [the Department of Revenue] website at https://tdorbt.tn.gov/doraccountsearch/Default.aspx.

If you are a company filing and paying for multiple individuals, please visit [the Department of Revenue] website at https://apps.tn.gov/privbatch/.

State law (Tennessee Code Annotated 67-1-115) authorizes the commissioner to require that any return, report, claim, statement, application or other document filed with the Department, including any type of payment that goes with it, be submitted electronically.
