Liquor Tax Woes Make Progress in Metro Nashville Davidson County Tennessee

07.05.17
The Metro Nashville's city council is considering legislation to move the collection of liquor privilege taxes from the City Clerk to the Treasurer. We see this as progress.

The City Clerk's mishandling of liquor privilege taxes has fueled considerable chatter among restaurant owners and licensing professionals. Earlier this spring, hundreds of invoices were mailed demanding payment for three year's worth of taxes, at a rate higher than authorized by state law.

We blogged about the letters here.

Once the legislation becomes law, we expect the Treasurer to consult with Metro Legal and work through the issues with the liquor privilege tax. We have spoken to the Treasurer and offered our assistance.

Until resolved, we recommend that folks continue holding onto invoices. Some tax is undoubtedly due, but we suspect the amount will be less than originally demanded.

Stay tuned for more news.
