A minimal license is required to be renewed in the County Clerk’s Office each year. A minimal activity business license is any business that has a gross income of $100,000 or less each year.

A standard business tax license requires an initial license to be issued at the County Clerk’s Office and then a TNTAP account with the State of Tennessee for renewal each year.
