Before you can file your returns and make payments through the department's Web site, you must obtain a username and password. This will allow you to file your return and make your payment each month while protecting the privacy of the information you provide. There is no cost for obtaining a username and password.
To obtain the username and password, you will go to the TN.gov Account Management Web site. You must designate someone as the "master administrator." This will be the person who can make any changes to the account and can designate who may file the returns. Normally, this will be the person who files your tax returns for you.
After you have assigned yourself a username and password, you will go to the Sales and Use Tax Online Filing Web site. You will also find instructions, tips and answers to frequently asked questions about electronic filing and payments here.
Detailed instructions on registration for electronic filing is available in our electronic filing guide.
