The Tennessee Department of Revenue will issue business relief payments through the Tennessee Business Relief Program to small businesses for costs incurred as a result of mandatory business closures.
The department will determine a business’ eligibility for the Tennessee Business Relief Program based on information available in its tax system. Eligibility notifications started going out to businesses during the last week of June.
Businesses owners who do not have online access will be asked to complete a paper certification form.
Once the certification form has been completed and a business’ eligibility is confirmed, the department will issue a business relief payment. Payments for eligible businesses started the dispursement process the first week of July.
