Registration and Licensing

Registration of liquor-by-the-drink tax is available on the Tennessee Taxpayer Access Point (TNTAP). To apply, please go to Tennessee Taxpayer Access Point (TNTAP) and select Register a New Business.  Registration for liquor-by-the-drink requires that you post a $10,000 bond with the Department. Additionally, you must post a price schedule (see link on left) with the Department.  For more information about the liquor-by-the-drink tax, please look at its guide, which can be found under the Publications tab on the left.
