April 15 isn’t just the deadline for the filing and payment of federal individual income tax. For some taxpayers, it’s also the due date for the filing and payment of certain state taxes.

“The fiscal year end for most businesses is December, meaning that their business tax returns and payments are due to the Department of Revenue no later than April 15, 2021 (updated here. Please remember the filing and payment dates for business owners are not the same as the business license expiration which is 30 days AFTER your taxes are due to be filed and paid,” said County Clerk James L. (Jimmy) Poss.

The Department’s website offers a convenient and secure way for taxpayers to file and pay these taxes online. Taxpayers should visit the “online services” section of the Department’s website to file and pay these taxes and to learn more information.

“The Department of Revenue will be sending postcard reminders to businesses that do not have a TNTAP filing username established reminding them to please do so right away so they can file and pay online by the due date,” Poss continued.

“Anyone needing assistance establishing a TNTAP logon, filing or submitting payment for a business tax renewal may contact our office for assistance. I personally provide assistance for not only business tax filings and payment submissions, but also sales and use tax, (HVUT) Heavy Vehicle use tax and obtaining FEIN Federal Employee Identification numbers,” Poss concluded.
