Business Tax License

Out-of-State Businesses have special Business Tax Requirements.  Click here for information.

Tennessee Businesses: The type of business tax license you need 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 license.  There are two types of business tax licenses.

Minimal Activity 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 is located, and there is a $15 annual renewal with the city and county offices.  No business taxes are due to the state to renew this type of license.  To obtain a minimal activity license, please complete Spring Hill Business Tax License Application and submit it to the City of Spring Hill along with payment for the $15.00 application fee.  **Home based businesses please see the attached list of requirements from the Spring Hill Building Codes Department. 

Standard Business Tax 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 for the previous tax period.  To obtain a standard business tax License, first, register your business with the Dept. of Revenue for a business tax account, at
https://apps.tn.gov/bizreg/. You will be mailed a confirmation letter from the Dept. of Revenue that will contain your state business tax account number(s).  You must submit that letter to the City of Spring Hill Business Tax Office along with a completed Spring Hill Business Tax License Application and $15.00.

**Home base businesses please see the attached list of requirements from the Spring Hill Building Codes Department.

Each year when you pay your business taxes to the Dept. of Revenue, the City of Spring Hill will be notified of your business tax payment, and your new standard business tax license will be mailed to you.  ALL business tax payments must be filed electronically with the Tennessee Department of Revenue.  To register for electronic filing go to https://apps.tn.gov/biztax/.   If you need help, you can call (866)368-6374, (800) 342-1003 or (615)253-0704 during normal business hours to get individual assistance.  You may also get assistance on the Dept. of Revenue website at www.TN.gov/revenue.

The Spring Hill Business Tax Office is located inside Spring Hill City Hall at 199 Town Center Parkway, Spring Hill, Tennessee 37174.   Your application may also be mailed to the Spring Hill Business Tax office at P.O. Box 789, Spring Hill, Tennessee 37174. 

Issuance of a Spring Hill Business Tax License does not permit operation unless properly zoned and/or in compliance with all other applicable state, county or city laws, rules and regulations.  Also, as required by Tennessee Code Annotated 39-17-1801 et seq., businesses must comply with all provisions of the Tennessee Non-Smoker Protection Act.
