Business Tax Overview
Registration and Licensing with TN Dept. of Revenue
File and Pay Business Tax with TN Dept. of Revenue
There are two types of business tax accounts. The type of business tax account you are required to have is determined by your gross income amount. Businesses that do not gross more than $3,000 in one tax period (fiscal year) are not liable to pay business taxes and do not need any type of business tax account.

Minimal Activity Business Tax Account/License
Businesses with gross income from $3,001 to $9,999 in one tax period (fiscal year) are required to obtain a minimal activity license. Minimal activity licenses require a $15 registration fee with the city and county where the business/job is located, and there is a $15 annual renewal with the city and county offices.
Standard Business Tax Account/License
Businesses with gross income of $10,000 or more in one tax period (fiscal year) are required to obtain a standard business tax license from both the city and county where the business is located. Standard business tax licenses require a $15 registration fee, and are renewed each year by paying business taxes to the TN Dept. of Revenue for the previous tax period.
To obtain a business tax license, please complete a Business Tax Registration Application and submit it to the Spring Hill Business Tax office with payment for the $15.00 license fee.
