Issues Facing Tennessee's Small Businesses

Date: April 25, 2023

Here’s a look at some of the issues we’ll be watching in next year’s legislative session:

NFIB joined other groups in calling for passage of SB 1140/HB 886, which would reinstate modest vendors’ compensation that was removed 20 years ago during a budget crisis. Retailers should not be unpaid tax collectors for the state. The measure failed to be included in the final budget; we will renew our efforts in 2024. 

Various proposals to eliminate the remaining five professions subject to the professional privilege tax also failed. No professional, in-state or out-of-state, should be taxed $400 annually to go to work.
