The Tennessee Department of Revenue has extended the due date for filing and paying franchise and excise tax from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020.

Taxpayers will have until July 15, 2020, to file returns and make any payments (including quarterly estimated payments) originally due on April 15, 2020. Interest and late filing penalties will not be applied to returns filed and payments made on or before this extended due date. The October 15, 2020, six-month extension date for the calendar year 2019 return remains unchanged.
