Local Sales Tax

Any county or incorporated city, by resolution or ordinance, may levy the local sales and use tax on the same privileges that are subject to the state’s sales or use tax. The local tax rate may not be higher than 2.75% and must be a multiple of .25. All local jurisdictions in Tennessee have a local sales and use tax rate. The local sales tax rate and use tax rate are the same rate. Local sales and use taxes are filed and paid to the Department of Revenue in the same manner as the state sales and use taxes.
