What is the professional privilege tax, and when is it due?

Courtney Wallace -

The professional privilege tax is levied by the Tennessee Department of Revenue on the privilege of having an active license to practice certain professions, including architecture, engineering, and landscape architecture.  The tax rate is $400, and is due on June 1 of each year.  The tax is collected separately from the $140 biennial registration fee, and does not apply to those declared inactive or retired pursuant to the rules of the Board.

Please contact the Department of Revenue at (615) 253-0600, or at Revenue Help, for any questions regarding tax payments or tax amounts due.  Professional privilege tax payments may be made online at TNTAPTax payments should not be submitted to the Board office.
